It’s Almost Time for #WearBlueDay
Hashtag Wear Blue Day is January 11th. Image of two people taking a selfie wearing blue clothing. Blue Campaign logo.
The White House has proclaimed January as National Human Trafficking Prevention Month. It is a time to bring awareness to the crime while emphasizing the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to protect and empower lived experience experts, prosecute traffickers, and bring an end to human trafficking in the United States and across the globe.
Blue Campaign invites you to play a role in combating human trafficking by participating in #WearBlueDay on Wednesday, January 11, 2023. Getting involved is simple:
Wear your favorite blue outfit or article of clothing (e.g., T-shirt or hat)
Take a selfie, group photo, or video
Share your photo or video on your preferred social media platform using the hashtag #WearBlueDay
Encourage friends and followers to post as well
Why blue? Blue is the international color of human trafficking awareness. Anyone can make a difference on #WearBlueDay, and by participating, you can increase online awareness of human trafficking and play a role in saving lives.
