NOT HERE Presents:  The Governor’s Summit on Human Trafficking

November 12 & 13, 2015


The Countdown: 99 days remaining


Yesterday began our 100 day countdown leading up to The Governor’s Summit on Human Trafficking in Maine. Over these 100 days, we will be sharing a fact, a resource, or a perspective each day, to raise awareness, encourage discussion, and inspire action against this injustice, both domestically, and globally.



July 22, 2015 marked the five year anniversary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Blue Campaign.  Over the past five years, the Blue Campaign has been the unified voice to highlight the department’s collective hard work towards the goal of ending human trafficking in the United States. Bringing together a wide range of expertise and resources, DHS strives to not only bring traffickers to justice, but also to protect victims from further exploitation and abuse. Several resources and training tools are available free, online, for those seeking additional information.
