January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Each year during this month, people and organizations around the nation recommit to assisting victims of human trafficking and to combating it in all its forms.
The U.S. Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons leads the United States’ global engagement against human trafficking and supports the coordination of anti-trafficking efforts across the U.S. government. These efforts include forging partnerships with foreign governments, international organizations, civil society, and the private sector to develop and implement effective strategies for confronting modern slavery.
