Human Trafficking Proclamation

President Obama signed a proclamation on January 4, 2010 declaring January as the "National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month."

He stressed two important notions:
  1. Human Dignity. The unalienable right to freedom and the notion that every person has equal value.
  2. Equality. Not just all people are of equal value, but all victims of human trafficking are of human value.
