January 11, 2012 marks National Human Trafficking Awareness Day and Polaris Project intends to commemorate this significant day by increasing our ongoing efforts to raise awareness about human trafficking and inspire people to action. However, it is important that our efforts to raise awareness for the issue extend further than just this one day.
We are encouraging all anti-trafficking activists to participate in our month-long “[_________________]” Against Human Trafficking” photo campaign starting on National Human Trafficking Awareness Day and ending on Valentine’s Day 2012. At the end of the campaign we’ll post a follow up photo blog with all of the entries that we receive.
Here are a few easy steps to get you started:
- Take a picture of yourself (alone, with your pet, with friends, etc.) holding up a sign with “______ Against Human Trafficking.” Be creative!
- Send your pictures in to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, February 14, 2012 and they will be featured on our North Star blog.
