January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. This is a key time for us all to educate ourselves about human trafficking and to develop comprehensive responses that assist victims and potential victims. The Children’s Bureau has updated their States Statutes guide with the latest information for each state’s and territory’s trafficking laws for adults and children.


For those looking for ways to get involved in National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, the Children’s Bureau publication shares the top three examples of collective lessons learned from Children’s Bureau grantees’ research and projects. These lessons can help create similar capacity-building efforts in communities to help support child and youth victims of human trafficking.
