Human trafficking has been discussed as one of Girl Museum's primary issues that face girls today since we were founded in 2009. With the opening of our exhibition, Girl for Sale, in 2011, we have been engaged in trying to stem this seemingly unstoppable tide. Today, January 11, is Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Do something meaningful to educate yourself, your family and your friends about this modern day slavery – a billion dollar business. Visit our Girl for Sale exhibition to learn more. Read President Obama’s proclamation of January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Talk about it with your children.
