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.
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 combating human trafficking or screen a human trafficking documentary. Encourage the audience to wear blue and post photos from the event with #WearBlueDay.
