Proclamation on National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, 2021

Below is a link to President Trump’s Proclamation on National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, 2021 which is this month.  Following are 3 statements taken from the proclamation which serve as background for our Anti-Human Trafficking work.

“During National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we reaffirm our commitment to eradicate this abhorrent evil, to support victims and survivors, and to hold traffickers accountable for their heinous crimes.”

“While we have reached new milestones in this fight for freedom, we must remain steadfast in our pursuit to end the evil practice of human trafficking and slavery.”

“I call upon industry associations, law enforcement, private businesses, faith-based and other organizations of civil society, survivors and advocates, schools, families, and all Americans to recognize our vital roles in ending all forms of modern slavery and to observe this month with appropriate programs and activities aimed at ending and preventing all forms of human trafficking.”

Red Sand Anti-Human Trafficking Project in Cambridge

Harriett’s House and the Eastern Shore Human Trafficking Task Force will participate in The Red Sand Project on Monday, January 18, 2021 @ 1 PM to raise awareness about Human Trafficking. We are inviting supporters and community members to join us outside Harriett’s House Drop In Center at 409 Muir Street in Cambridge, MD. We will pour red sand into the cracks of the sidewalk to represent how the victims of Human Trafficking fall through the cracks and go unnoticed. We will then go to the area near the Harriet Tubman Mural to apply red sand in the cracks of the sidewalk there.

Harriett’s House will provide the materials for this project. Each person will receive a bag of red sand to use for the project. Find out more about the Red Sand Project @ www.redsandproject.org

Please join us in Cambridge on the 18th, contact Julie Crain [email protected].
