The Plymouth County Human Trafficking Task Force believes that outreach and awareness are critical to the identification and prevention of human trafficking. Below you will find a few of the projects that the PCHTTF has completed. These materials demonstrate the Task Force’s commitment to representing a wide variety of vulnerable populations in a trauma-informed way that avoids sensationalism. Additionally, these materials used open source photos that are free to use and reproduce.
If you are interested in hanging the posters up at your business/organization or helping to distribute posters within the community, please reach out to PlymouthDA.HumanTrafficking@mass.gov.
Human Trafficking Awareness Month PSAs
January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Every year since 2010, the President has dedicated this month to raise awareness about human trafficking and to reflect on the resilience of survivors.
The theme for 2023 is ‘Partner to Prevent’: this highlights the importance of collaboration and partnership in strengthening our community’s response to human trafficking.
When we partner together across all sectors of society, we are better able to support survivors and enhance our efforts to prevent trafficking.
To acknowledge this month, the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office ran a PSA campaign to educate the community on the realities of trafficking, the importance of partnership, and the work that is being done throughout our county.
