Human Trafficking Awareness Month

Opposition to Human Trafficking may not be in the AAUW Public Policy Program explicitly, but this is certainly in line with all the other AAUW principles of civil rights; freedom from violence; and economic, social, and physical well-being of all persons. So you may be interested in these events in honor of January as Human Trafficking Awareness Month in North Carolina and January 11 as National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.
