Social Media Takeover: Voices of Human Trafficking

This July, Blue Campaign is launching a #VoicesofTrafficking storytelling campaign on our social media channels. This effort will highlight the work of individuals and organizations working to combat human trafficking. Follow #VoicesofTrafficking and @DHSBlueCampaign on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram and read personal stories about the fight to end trafficking.

This July: Facebook Live Series

Blue Campaign and Polaris will host a four-part Facebook Live series next month covering topics to help the public identify suspected trafficking and accurately report the crime to the National Human Trafficking Hotline. We’ll discuss the common types of trafficking, what callers can expect when contacting the Hotline, and share real-life stories of how a tip helped someone in need.

For more details about the Facebook Live series, visit our event page and click “going.”
