President Barack Obama Addresses National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month 2017

President Barrack Obama signs in December 2010 the Human Trafficking Awareness Month Proclamation culminating in the annual celebration of National Freedom Day on February 1.  “At the start of each year, Americans commemorate the Emancipation Proclamation, which became effective on January 1, 1863, and the 13th Amendment, which was signed by President Abraham Lincoln and sent to the States for ratification on February 1, 1865.

These seminal documents secured the promise of freedom for millions 
enslaved within our borders and brought us closer to perfecting our Union.  We also recall that, over 10 years ago, the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000 renewed America's commitment to combating modern slavery domestically and internationally.  With this law, America reaffirmed the fundamental promise of "forever free" enshrined within the Emancipation Proclamation."

President Truman enclosed in the approved Proclamation “Whereas the Government and people of the United States wholeheartedly support the Universal Declaration of Human Rights approved by the General Assembly of the United
Nations on December 10, 1948, which declares that "recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice, and peace in the world.”

President Donald Trump signs in December 2020 the Human Trafficking Awareness Month Proclamation
“Human trafficking is a horrific assault on human dignity that affects people in the United States and around the world.

tears apart communities, fuels criminal activity, and threatens the national security of the United States.  During National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we reaffirm our commitment to eradicate this abhorrent evil, to support victims and survivors, and to hold traffickers accountable for their heinous crimes.

Tragically, through force, fraud, and coercion, human traffickers deprive millions of victims of their unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Often referred to as “modern slavery,” this intolerable blight on society involves exploitation for labor or sex and affects people of all ages, genders, races, religions, and nationalities.

As the United States 
continues to lead the global fight against human trafficking, we must remain relentless in our resolve to dismantle this illicit and immoral enterprise in our cities, suburbs, rural communities, Tribal lands, and transportation networks.”
