“In 2013, the General Assembly held a high-level meeting to appraise the Global Plan of Action. Member States also adopted resolution A/RES/68/192 and designated July 30 as the World Day against Trafficking in Persons. This resolution declared that such a day was necessary to ‘raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights.’”
This year, the UN is highlighting the importance of government action in the fight against modern-day enslavement. Everyone, however, is encouraged to take action against this scourge.
