UNICEF USA created a toolkit for end trafficking month.
Children around the globe — whether born abroad or right here in our backyard — face a world of significant challenges, but also immense opportunity. At UNICEF USA, we are working to build a world where every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential, free from violence and exploitation. We do this because we believe that a world fit for children is a world fit for all.
We invite you to stand with us in saying that even one child trafficked is one too many. Through your advocacy, education, fundraising, and community building efforts, you can help us end this practice. This means that you will not only provide opportunity for today’s children, but will also help us build a more stable, safe and sustainable world for generations to come.
What is End Trafficking Month?In the U.S., January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month — also known as End Trafficking Month (ETM) here at UNICEF USA (UUSA). We invite concerned individuals just like you to take action to raise awareness throughout January and combat trafficking in your everyday life.
