Proclamation 10331 of December 30, 2021
National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, 2022
By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation
Human trafficking—whether in the form of forced labor, sex trafficking,
or other offenses—is an abhorrent abuse of power and a profoundly immoral
crime that strikes at the safety, health, and dignity of millions of people
worldwide. During National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we reaf-
firm our commitment to protect and empower survivors of all forms of
human trafficking, to prosecute traffickers, and to bring an end to human
trafficking in the United States and around the world.
My Administration is committed to stopping human trafficking wherever
it occurs. This month, we released the updated National Action Plan to
Combat Human Trafficking—a whole-of-government approach to combating
human trafficking in the United States and abroad. The plan links anti-
trafficking initiatives to our wider efforts to counter illicit financing; advance
gender and racial equity; expand the rights and dignity of working people;
and promote safe, orderly, and humane migration.
My Administration is also dedicated to ensuring that our justice system
holds accountable any individuals or entities engaged in this horrendous
crime—and that our domestic and global economic systems offer no safe
harbor to forced labor or other abuses. In addition to helping survivors
on their road to recovery, we must also learn from their expertise in order
to better detect trafficking crimes that are often hidden in plain sight, bring
perpetrators to justice, and improve our prevention efforts. Since human
trafficking disproportionately impacts racial and ethnic minorities, women
and girls, LGBTQI+ individuals, vulnerable migrants, and other historically
marginalized and underserved communities, our mission to combat human
trafficking must always be connected to our broader efforts to advance
equity and justice across our society.
During National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, let us resolve to
counter injustice and fortify our commitment to pursue dignity and freedom
for all people. The National Human Trafficking Hotline (1–888–373–7888)
is an important resource to report a tip or ask for help.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States
of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution
and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 2022 as
National Human Trafficking Prevention Month. I call upon businesses, civil
society organizations, communities of faith, families, and all Americans to
recognize the vital role we play in combating human trafficking, and to
observe this month with appropriate programs and activities aimed at pre-
venting all forms of human trafficking.
