Human Trafficking Awareness Day



January 11 is Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the United States – a day to bring awareness to the world-wide crisis also known as modern day slavery. The 29th General Synod officially recognized the date and called on UCC congregations to be part of the education and advocacy efforts associated with Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

If you need help or have a tip, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 1-888-373-7888.  The National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) is a national, toll-free hotline available to answer calls from anywhere in the country, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year. The NHTRC is not a law enforcement or immigration authority and is operated by a nongovernmental organization funded by the Federal government. In an emergency, call 911.

You can share information about the National Human Trafficking Resources Center Hotline by printing out this flyer and posting it on your church bulletin board.

You can learn more about human trafficking and find additional resources and worship materials via our web site.
