COMMITTED TO THE CAUSE TO END HUMAN TRAFFICKING:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing information about joining the meeting. Contact Bruce Freeman at

The theme for the World Day will focus on first responders to human trafficking. These people work in different sectors - identifying, supporting, counseling, and seeking justice for victims and challenging the impunity of the traffickers. During the COVID - 19 crisis, the role of first responders has become even more important, even as the restriction imposed by the pandemic made their work more difficult. Still, their contribution is often overlooked and unrecognized. Through stories from first responders describing their practical work in assisting victims, the UN Office on Drugs and Crimes will spotlight their contributions and their impact on fighting trafficking.
