DHS blue campaign

In a bid to curb and accelerate the prevention of human trafficking and the protection of exploited persons, the Blue Campaign Initiative is inviting the general public to join in this year’s celebration to mark the day.

The Blue Campaign initiative #WearBlueDay which is held every year on January 11th, is a National Public Awareness Campaign program designed to educate the public, law enforcement agencies, and other industry partners to recognize the indicators of human trafficking, and how to appropriately respond to possible cases.

In recognition of this important day throughout January, the Blue Campaign has urged the public to take photos of themselves, friends, families, and colleagues wearing blue clothing and sharing them on all Social Media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) alongside the hashtag #WearBlueDay.

The largest Campaign Initiative which works closely with DHS Components to develop general awareness training, as well as specific educational resources to help reduce victimization within vulnerable populations has also hosted several special events and educational activities.

Located within the Office of Partnership, and Engagement and aligned with the DHS Center for Countering Human Trafficking, the Campaign leverages partnerships with the Private Sector, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO), Law Enforcement Agencies, and State/Local Authorities to maximize National public engagement on anti-human trafficking efforts to ameliorate the growing scourge of the menace.
