Celebrate United Nations Day

Tuesday, October 24th marks the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially became into being. Help honor and celebrate United Nations day by learning more about their initiative to fight human trafficking.

In 2007, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) launched the United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT), a multi-stakeholder initiative to fight human trafficking. Learn more about this initiative and the other ways the UN fights human trafficking here.
