30 July – UN World Day against Trafficking in Persons


30 July - World Day Against Trafficking
Sign up for the 30th July, 2015 Thunderclap and join the coordinated social mass media message that will be issued on the UN World Day against Trafficking in Persons.
‘I give hope’ campaign was launched by the UN in 2014, to raise awareness about human trafficking and invite people worldwide, to show solidarity with the victims of this crime.
The campaign is repeated again this year. We are each called by Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary General to “act as one in the name of justice and dignity for all” (WDTIP) and to “cultivate warm ties that strengthen our common humanity and promote the well-being of the human family” (IDF). You can show your solidarity with the victims of human trafficking by logging on to and downloading the series of leaflets, logos and campaign images, which are helpful to awareness-raising.
Additionally, you can visit to read and share more about how NGOs across the world are working to help survivors of trafficking.
Spread the word and invite friends to join the Thunder, through support with Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.

30th July 2014: World Day against Trafficking in Persons


On 30 July 2014 the United Nations will mark the first ever World Day against Trafficking in Persons. The day is aimed at raising awareness around this global issue and to highlight the plight of the millions of women, men and children who are victims of trafficking from all corners of the world, as well as at encouraging people to take action against this crime.
Being the inaugural World Day, they have planned a number of public information materials and activities using both traditional and social media. They have used the existing Blue Heart in the core of their ideas as well as branding, since it is fast-becoming the internationally recognised symbol in the fight against human trafficking as campaign gains support throughout the world.
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has developed the following materials for the World Day against Trafficking in Persons Campaign:

  • World Day Campaign website which houses the materials:
  • World Day logo in various languages (see website)
  • Leaflet on the World Day with facts about human trafficking
  • Messages from Secretary General and UNODC Executive Director (Forthcoming)
  • Social Media Outreach Campaign: #igivehope through Facebook and Twitter

This year they have decided to engage people and civil society organizations to participate actively via social media to mark the World Day. With the insight that human traffickers prey on hope, the social media leg of the campaign will ask people around the world ahead and on 30 July to ‘give hope’ to show their solidarity with victims of human trafficking.
Using the hashtag #igivehope, they invite you to share pictures of yourselves and members of your organization making the internationally recognised gesture of two hands forming a heart. These will all be collected and used in a video on the above campaign website.
