World Day Against Trafficking In Persons

This Saturday, July 30th, ERASE Child Trafficking and the entire globe will recognize World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. In 2013 the United Nations World Day Against Trafficking in PersonsGeneral Assembly committed to having a day to “raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights.”

This dedicated day allows organizations, communities and individuals everywhere to shine light on a very dark problem. Through our actions we can help people take notice of a growing epidemic. Human trafficking exists in every country in the world in one form or another.

In the United States alone, 46 children are taken and forced into the child trafficking industry every day. But due to the upsetting ugliness of this problem, child trafficking is an issue that is often neglected in conversations everywhere, including social media.

World Day Against Trafficking In Persons

ERASE Child Trafficking has decided to bring this issue onto social media platforms and into conversations. Our hope is to raise awareness about victims of child trafficking and to prevent future victims. By spreading awareness with education we can make a difference, but with your help the impact on child trafficking will be even greater.

In recognition of World Day Against Trafficking in Persons we’re initiating the #HelpErase awareness campaign. We are asking individuals or groups to record a video or take a picture and post it on social media showing you physically erasing the words “Child Trafficking”.  You might decide on a whiteboard, chalkboard, paper and pencil with eraser, or even digital media—whatever unique approach works for you. Then, post your video or picture to social media along with the hashtag #HelpErase. Share your posts and tag your friends and encourage them to make posts of their own. Use your online voice for good and see how the effects of your small action can grow into hope for victims of child trafficking.

While July 30th is World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, the #HelpErase campaign will continue past that day because child trafficking will continue as well.
