Blue Campaign by DHS aims to combat human trafficking

In Awareness, Human Trafficking on June 15, 2013 at 4:17 pm

The federal government is taking new steps to highlight the horrors of human trafficking and help victims of the often hidden crime.

Through an initiative dubbed the Blue Campaign, the Department of Homeland Security is launching a website, logo and mission statement, as well as distributing thousands of posters, tip sheets and public service announcements about trafficking.

The efforts, part of a broad federal push to deal with trafficking, will help more victims be identified, federal officials say. Some advocates and researchers warn that such a campaign needs to be focused on evidence-based techniques and clear measures must be used to evaluate its success.
