January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. On Thursday, January 5th The Children’s Assessment Center hosted its 1st Annual CAC Human Trafficking Awareness Day and Press Conference. Our hope at The CAC is that during this month, we can unite individuals and organizations to help increase awareness and support survivors of trafficking through a coordinated, collaborative approach to fighting trafficking. Houston is a hub for trafficking, and it will take every one of us to make a difference and put an end to this tragedy. Our message this month is simple – our children are not for sale.
