|On JANUARY 11, Human Trafficking Awareness Day, we invite you to Wear BLUE, the colour that is the international symbol of human trafficking awareness. Post a photo of yourself and/or your group wearing blue and share it on social media in order to raise awareness and generate conversation about human trafficking. Be sure to tag USCSAHT in your #wearblueday photos: Facebook (@SistersAgainstTrafficking), Twitter (@uscsahtraffic), and Instagram (@uscsaht).
Alternatively, email a photo of yourself to Kathleen Bryant, rsc, at firstname.lastname@example.org wearing blue and holding a poster with the caption #endhumantrafficking and Kathleen will be sure it is included in the Instagram campaign..
