Human Trafficking Awareness Day


January 11, 2013 is Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Philadelphia City Council heard testimony last month about the extent of human trafficking in the city. On average, over 200 women are available for sex on any given day, and the number of young men and boys trafficked is growing.

Women’s Way, a local coalition, is holding a series of events throughout the month and has resources for both volunteers and victims of human trafficking. Their banners and signs can be seen throughout the city and on public transportation.
