January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month

Human trafficking is a horrendous crime that impacts communities throughout our Nation. With increased awareness, improved services, and effective prosecutions, we can work together to fight this crime and support the survivors. Every January, we commemorate National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month to renew our commitment to helping trafficking victims.

In an effort to help communities prepare for local events for this January, we highlight the following OVC resources —

Faces of Human Trafficking Resource GuideFaces of Human Trafficking Resource Guide
This award-winning multidisciplinary resource can be used to raise awareness of the seriousness of human trafficking, the many forms it can take, and the important role that everyone can play in identifying and serving victims.

This resource includes nine videos, a discussion guide, four fact sheets, and four posters. The guide can be viewed online or a limited quantity of physical copies may be ordered through the OVC Resource Center (shipping and handling fees will be applied.)

Developed in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance, this Guide is a resource to support established task forces and provide guidance to agencies that are forming task forces.
