January 11 marks National Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the United States, and the Somaly Mam Foundation is proud to be a part of the domestic and international abolitionist movement. With help from partners like The Body Shop International, we have been able to expand support services to include over ten direct victim service operations in five countries, with a predominant focus on Southeast Asia.
In honor of National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, please join us with our partners as we present an historical petition with more than 720,000 signatures to National Association of Attorneys General President Rob McKenna in Seattle, Washington. If you can't make it, you can still help end slavery on this landmark day.
