Default National Human Trafficking Awareness Day (Month)

This Monday marks National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, which was set by the 110TH CONGRESS - 1ST SESSION S. CON. RES. 40 - CONCURRENT RESOLUTION, passed by the Senate on June 22, 2007. The resolution was established to support the goals and ideals of observing an established National Day of Human Trafficking Awareness to be recognized each year on January 11.

On January 4th, President Barack Obama proclaimed January 2010 as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. The announcement was set to preclude the nationís annual celebration of National Freedom Day on February 1. The announcement of this years recognition is hopefully only the beginning, as currently Congress is looking to permanently set January as National Slavery and Trafficking Prevention Month, of which the Senate has already take action to place a similar measure into consideration.
