National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is observed on 11th January every year in the United States. The day is dedicated to raising awareness about human trafficking. Even though the entire month of January is recognized as National Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Month, 11th January specifically aims to combat illegal practices.
In 2007, the United States Senate ratified a proposal to establish 11th January as National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. In 2010, President Obama dedicated the entire month of January to awareness and prevention of human trafficking. Today, there are over 50 established organizations that combat this illegal practice globally, and more awareness has been raised than ever before.
