January – which is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month – has been a busy month for the End Trafficking Project. Our UNICEF USA constituents have been working hard to raise awareness in their communities, from hosting meetings with local Congressional representatives and planning film screenings, to participating in our social media campaign and hosting educational meetings with UNICEF clubs. It is truly exciting to see concerned individuals around the country getting active to end trafficking.
In addition to a new podcast episode highlighting ways students can get engaged, we are excited to have released a series of new resources, including an End Trafficking Events Toolkit. The Toolkit gives lots of examples of events and activities that individuals can do to educate their communities about child trafficking. Though it is designed for college students, many of the activities and action steps are perfect for anyone who is passionate about getting involved. You can also check out our new blog posts to help get you started:

Thank you for supporting UNICEF USA’s End Trafficking Project!
When many people think of human trafficking, they imagine it's happening somewhere ‘over there.’ Few realize that it impacts thousands of children in the U.S.A. every day. With your support, we are working to reach a day where no child has to experience exploitation or violence.
Part of what makes the End Trafficking Project’s work so powerful is our ability to collaborate with passionate partners, including student leaders who are shedding light on trafficking in their own communities. Our team recently visited the University of Nevada, Reno for Shut Out Trafficking – an initiative made possible through our partnership with the National Consortium for Academics in Sports (NCAS). The End Trafficking Team is extremely grateful for the inspiring dedication from all of our collaborators without whom this initiative – and our work – would not be possible.
Thank you for your continued generosity, and stay tuned for more updates!
