The United States Department of Homeland Security DHS launched the Blue Campaign in 2010 to more effectively combat human trafficking through four strategies:

1) enhanced public awareness,

2) improve victim assistance,

3)  strengthen law enforcement investigations

3)  increasing prosecution.

With an estimated 20.9 million victims (source ILO), every year, men, women, and children are enslaved in the world, including the United States. Most victims are lured with false promises of all kind, from promises of well-paying jobs, manipulation or forced into prostitution, or different typpes of forced labor.

Due to the fact that the Blue Campaign is, in our opinion, a well planned action to improve activities against human trafficking, by teaching everybody, from law enforcement officers, to educators, to transportation workers, etc,

Therefore, we invite our interested readers to take a few minutes to learn the signs of human trafficking and trafficking indicators how to report suspected cases of human trafficking.
