On JANUARY 11, Human Trafficking Awareness Day we invite you to Wear BLUE, the color that is the international symbol of human trafficking awareness. Post a photo of yourself and/or your group wearing blue and share it on social media in order to raise awareness and generate conversation about human trafficking. Be sure to tag AEHT in your #wearblueday photos: Facebook (@SistersAgainstTrafficking), Twitter (@uscsahtraffic), and Instagram (@uscsaht).
Here are a few sample messages you can include with your post on social media:
