#WearBlueDay for National Human Trafficking Awareness

We will be wearing blue on January 11 to raise awareness of human trafficking. Will you join us?

Human trafficking is a multibillion-dollar industry that thrives in darkness and secrecy.

the fight to end trafficking begins with awareness and acknowledgement.

National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is recognized on January 11 each year in the United States to raise awareness and acknowledgement for a nefarious industry that thrives in darkness and secrecy. To stand in solidarity against exploitation, the Young Living Foundation will be participating in the #WearBlueDay campaign, and we want you to join us!

How to participate

To raise awareness of the prevalence of human trafficking, we invite you to wear blue on January 11. Take a photo of yourself wearing blue (anything blue will do!) and post that picture to Facebook or Instagram with the #WearBlueDay hashtag. Be sure to tag @younglivingfoundation so we can share the photos you post! Invite your friends and family to join you—the awareness we raise together will make a difference.

Why wear blue?

Human trafficking happens all around the world, and the United States is no exception. According to the U.S. Department of State, in 2019, the National Human Trafficking Hotline received 136,990 reports and identified 11,852 potential human trafficking cases.



Globally, it is estimated that there are 16 million victims of labor trafficking in private industry, 4.8 million victims of sex trafficking, and 4.1 million victims of state-imposed forced labor.
