Wear Blue Day

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month and today you are encouraged to wear blue to help raise awareness.”Wear Blue Day” was created for the public to pledge solidarity with victims of human trafficking, raise awareness, and to help end this heinous crime.
Experts say human trafficking happens more often than you think and it’s important to know what signs look like and who to call if you see something suspicious. Advocates For Freedom Executive Director John Jones said, “Every case is different, there are some red flags, there’s body language to look out for, find out if the person has freedom, if they’re able to leave and go and do as they want, if they have access to their own money, if they have access to their own documentation, those are big red flags.”
Advocates for Freedom invites the public to a Human Trafficking Conference this Friday in Biloxi at the Civic Center from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tickets are $30 per person and lunch is included. For more information please visit advocatesforfreedom.org.
