January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month

As we usher in the new year, January marks National Human Trafficking Awareness Month in the United States. At DISA, we recognize the significance of joining the nationwide conversation to combat human trafficking and amplify awareness in the transportation sectors.

Promoting Awareness: What You Can Do

This month, DISA encourages everyone to play a role in raising awareness and fostering education. Here are some simple yet impactful actions you can take:

  • Host Internal Learning Opportunities: Consider organizing webinars or training sessions to educate your teams about the signs of human trafficking.
  • Gather Feedback: Engage your frontline workers by seeking their input on potential trafficking situations. Their experiences and insights can contribute to a better understanding of the issue.
  • Share Resources and Training: Utilize the wealth of resources available, including videos and materials, to continue learning about human trafficking. Share these resources with your employees to enhance their awareness.
  • Launch a Social Media Campaign: Leverage your online platforms to spread awareness about the realities of trafficking. Use co-branded graphics and sample language to contribute to the broader conversation.
