During National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we reaffirm 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 antitrafficking 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. TKELLEY on DSK125TN23PROD with PRES DOC NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R.

                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 reaffirm 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 preventing all forms 
                of human trafficking.
