January 11-February 8

National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is recognized each year on January 11. In recognition of this important day, advocates of ending human trafficking wear blue and pray for an end to human trafficking. Many events culminate on February 8 on the Feast of St. Josephine Bakhita the patron saint of human trafficking.

Throughout the month of January, Blue Campaign hosts several special events and educational activities. 


Alliance to End Human Trafficking

Alliance to End Human Trafficking is a collaborative, faith-based national network that offers education, supports access to survivor services, and engages in advocacy in an effort to eradicate human trafficking. As a member of Talitha Kum International, we are connected to a global network of women religious aligned in this mission. Alliance to End Human Trafficking works to end human trafficking through providing educational resources, giving presentations, raising awareness, and engaging in advocacy at the state and federal level. We support survivors of human trafficking in healing and thriving through direct services such as providing shelter, counseling, spiritual support, job placement, and educational scholarships.
