Human Trafficking Awareness Month January - February 2015
An estimated 27 million people in the world live in slavery. Human trafficking, the illegal trade of human beings for exploitation or forced labor, is the second largest international crime - an industry that generates profits of $32 billion a year.

Though most people believe that human trafficking is abolished in this country, there are more slaves now in this country than at any point in history. Around 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year. The SF Bay Area, our own backyard, is a major hub.

How SFO Employees can Help Raise Awareness
This event will begin with a one-mile remembrance walk around SFO and will conclude with informational presentations and a reception held at the Aviation Museum.

Eighty percent of human trafficking victims are women and girls; in a show of solidarity, the walk will be comprised of men walking while everyone is encouraged to pledge their financial support. 

Freedom House
Proceeds will benefit Freedom House, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to bring hope, restoration, and a new life to survivors of human trafficking by providing a safe home and long-term aftercare.
