List of dates for other years
On July 30 every year, the United Nations (UN) promotes World Day Against Trafficking Persons.
Human trafficking affects every country in the world. At least 2.5 million people are trapped in modern-day slavery, according to the UN.
One in Four are Children
All around the world, men, women and children are kidnapped, tricked, blackmailed, or manipulated into slavery, like prostitution, forced labor, or organ removal. One in four victims are children. More than half of these children are from Africa and the Middle East, and more than one third are from Asia and the Pacific.
The UN launched the Day Against Trafficking Persons for the first time on July 30, 2014, to end human trafficking and raise awareness worldwide.
Support the End to Trafficking
The UN works with goverments and communities to promote the day through different events and activities. The UN has created a social media campaign, called #igivehope, inviting people to post a photo of a heart formed with your hands to express your support to end human trafficking.
