January is National Slavery & Human Trafficking Prevention Month
See the LRC display cabinet for related library materials.
Read President Obama’s proclamation here:
It reads, in part:
The victims of modern slavery have many faces. They are men and women, adults and children. Yet, all are denied basic human dignity and freedom.
We must join together as a Nation and global community to provide that safe haven by protecting victims and prosecuting traffickers.
Fighting modern slavery and human trafficking is a shared responsibility. This month, I urge all Americans to educate themselves about all forms of modern slavery and the signs and consequences of human trafficking. Together, we can and must end this most serious, ongoing criminal civil rights violation.
