Today Is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day

More than 20 million men, women, and children around the world are victims of human trafficking. January 11 is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, as designated by the U.S. Senate in 2007. January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, by Presidential proclamation beginning in 2010.

Through the Technical Assistance on Evaluation for Children’s Bureau Discretionary Grant Programs project, JBA serves as evaluation technical advisor to grantees working to increase awareness of child trafficking and improve cross-system responses within the child welfare population. Senior Research Associates Anne Fromknecht and Erin Ingoldsby have produced two reports as part of a series about the child trafficking grant cluster: Summary of Programs and Evaluations Plans (2016) and Mid-Cycle Synthesis of Process Evaluation Findings (2017).
