January of 2019 holds the title of Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

But what is human trafficking? According to dictionary.com, human trafficking is the action or practice of illegally transporting people from one country or area to another, typically for the purposes of forced labor or sexual exploitation.

The NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking unites NJ communities to abolish human trafficking. Hawthorne High School participated with many other states across the nation in a School Awareness Campaign called, LOCKER SLAM.

LOCKER SLAM provides the school with magnets encouraging awareness of human trafficking. Not only were magnets put around the school, but on Friday, January 11,  many students in Hawthorne High School participated in wearing the color black to spread awareness. In addition, the HHS library viewed a live event during both lunch periods called “Breaking Free: Students Against Trafficking.”

If you want to continue spreading awareness, you can post on social media with the hashtag #njstudentsforfreedom. You can also follow this awareness account @njhumantrafficking.
