20 Years of OVC’s Anti-Trafficking Efforts Commemoration Guide


The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is celebrating 20 years of anti-trafficking work! We’ve selected Collaboration, Transformation, and Impact as the theme for this milestone, which underscores the importance of helping human trafficking survivors find their justice by—

  • identifying and assisting all victims of human trafficking;
  • enforcing human trafficking victims’ rights;
  • expanding access to services through victim-centered and trauma-informed programs, policies, and resources; and
  • promoting justice, access, and empowerment for all.

In commemoration of January 2023 Human Trafficking Prevention Month, OVC has created this Commemoration Guide, which contains outreach tools and sample materials to help you quickly and capably develop and carry out your anti-trafficking awareness campaign and other public awareness campaigns throughout the year.

Join OVC in raising awareness of human trafficking victims’ rights and the services available to assist them by highlighting programs, celebrating the progress achieved, and honoring survivors and the professionals who serve them.

Connect with us through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and email to keep informed about events and updates to OVC resources. Visit our Stay Connected page to learn more.

For guidance on how to incorporate survivors’ voices into your Human Trafficking Prevention Month activities without exploiting or retraumatizing the individual, review a guide for anti-trafficking public awareness materials from the President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons.
