Raising Awareness to End Human Trafficking
Today, instead of following the CWA tradition of wearing red on Thursdays, thousands of CWA members are wearing blue as part of National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Throughout the month of January, AFA-CWA Flight Attendants are promoting greater public awareness about the scourge of human trafficking. Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Human trafficking is a billion-dollar business, and every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide. It can happen in any community, and victims can be any age, race, gender, or nationality.
You can participate in this important campaign by posting a photo of yourself and others wearing blue on social media platforms. When sharing your post, don't forget to include the hashtags #WearBlueDay and #TacklingTrafficking. If you're using X (formerly known as Twitter), make sure to tag @afa_cwa to spread the word even further.
