Human trafficking occurs in cities, suburbs, and rural areas throughout the U.S. and victims can be any age, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic background. For over a decade, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Blue Campaign has been committed to increasing awareness on the issue to combat and ultimately end human trafficking.
