NATIONAL VISION BOARD DAY HISTORY

Kellan Lutz and Ryan Daly submitted National Vision Board Day in June of 2015.

In July of 2015, the Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed the day to be observed on the second Saturday in January, annually. 

National Human Trafficking Awareness Day - January 11

NATIONAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING AWARENESS DAY

National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is observed annually on January 11th.

Beginning in 2010, by Presidential Proclamation, each January has been designated National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.   Following the start of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, with the help of non-government organizations, National Human Trafficking Day began and is observed annually on January 11.

Following is an excerpt from the above link:

“As we work to dismantle trafficking networks and help survivors rebuild their lives, we must also address the underlying forces that push so many into bondage. We must develop economies that create legitimate jobs, build a global sense of justice that says no child should ever be exploited, and empower our daughters and sons with the same chances to pursue their dreams. This month, I call on every nation, every community, and every individual to fight human trafficking wherever it exists. Let us declare as one that slavery has no place in our world, and let us finally restore to all people the most basic rights of freedom, dignity, and justice.”

HOW TO OBSERVE #HumanTraffickingAwarenessDay

One way to get involved is through the 31:8 Project. The organization works to equip and challenge society to proactively address issues regarding human trafficking. Human Trafficking takes away the voice of its victims and Project 31:8 aims to speak for them – Proverbs 31:8 – speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Their work is on track to reach over 25,000 people in 2019 through presentations, trainings, webinars, and community projects.

Visit their website at www.318project.org to learn more.

Use #HumanTraffickingAwarenessDay to post on social media.
