Beginning in 2010, by Presidential Proclamation, each January has been designated National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Following the start of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, with the help of non-government organizations, National Human Trafficking Day began and is observed annually on January 11th.
It’s happening in every state across the country, including Maryland. Human Trafficking is a $150 billion industry, according to the International Labor Organization. Many view it as an international crisis, but it’s a big problem in our community, too.
Reid Temple AMEC has a Human Trafficking group that supports a number of Human Trafficking organizations including Courtney’s House, Prince George’s Human Trafficking Task Force; Araminta, Prince George’s County Family Justice Center and others. If you are interested in being a part of the Human Trafficking group at Reid Temple AMEC, please contact Renee Brooks.
