World Day against Trafficking in Persons (30 July 2014)

By Civil Society Team, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC)

On 30 July 2014 the United Nations will mark the first ever World Day against Trafficking in Persons. The day is aimed at raising awareness around this global issue and to highlight the plight of the millions of women, men and children who are victims of trafficking from all corners of the world, as well as at encouraging people to take action against this crime.

Being the inaugural World Day, we have planned a number of public information materials and activities using both traditional and social media. We have used the existing Blue Heart in the core of our ideas as well as branding, since it is fast-becoming the internationally recognised symbol in the fight against human trafficking as campaign gains support throughout the world.
