Trump designates January 2018 a month dedicated to combatting human trafficking

President Trump last week designated January 2018 as “National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.”

In a proclamation issued Dec. 29, Trump announced that January will be a time for the U.S. to “recommit ourselves to eradicating the evil of enslavement.”
