January is dedicated to raising awareness of human trafficking. Blue Campaign’s largest awareness event is #WearBlueDay on Saturday, January 11th – National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. On this day, we ask you to wear a piece of blue clothing, take a photo of yourself or with others, and share it on social media (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) with #WearBlueDay. It not only raises awareness of human trafficking, it generates online conversation about the crime. Don’t forget to tag us using @DHSBlueCampaign on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, so we can see how you are participating in #WearBlueDay!
Why the Color Blue?
Blue is internationally symbolic of human trafficking awareness. Put your blue on and join us!
Ways You Can Participate
Need ideas for #WearBlueDay? Here are some creative ways you can participate:
- Take a Group Photo: Make it a team effort and invite your friends, family, and colleagues to wear blue and take a group photo. Share it on social media using #WearBlueDay.
- Light Up a Landmark: Coordinate with your local governments to light a capitol building, landmark, fountain, or bridge blue to raise awareness of human trafficking. Los Angeles City Hall was lit blue in 2018 and Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted a photo with #WearBlueDay.
- Host an Event: Host a panel discussion with local organizations combatting human trafficking or screen a human trafficking documentary. Encourage the audience to wear blue and post photos from the event with #WearBlueDay.
