#WearBlueDay January, 11th

January 9, 2020

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:
