World Day Against Trafficking in Persons - 30 July and the Blue Heart Campaign
July 30 is the United Nations’ World Day Against Trafficking in Persons
Go to the UN online to read about the day and the Blue Heart Campaign:
As career development professionals, we need to reach out to services in our countries and communities that rescue and restore the lives of survivors. We can help survivors build a sustainable career as one facet of their healing.
One of the UN Advocates for Sustainable Development Goals is Nadia Murad who is a survivor of human trafficking. I recently listened to the Audible version of her book:
As a volunteer for Shared Hope International which works to end sex trafficking especially of children and youths, I have heard and read personal accounts that illustrate a deep depravity in humanity. More than 20% of trafficked people, worldwide, are children (Planet Earth's most precious commodity). Even though I am not the same religion that is at the foundation of Shared Hope International, I support their work as a financial contributor, legislative advocate, and volunteer.
