Waco, TX – According to the statement, Gov. Abbott proclaimed January 2024 as Human Trafficking Prevention Month in Texas.
Governor Abbott reportedly said:
“Each year, Texas dedicates the month of January to raise awareness about human trafficking and honor the hard work of so many people and organizations striving to end this scourge.
As Governor, Texas has bolstered resources for survivors of human trafficking and we have increased penalties for offenders to ensure they are punished to the fullest extent of the law.
While we have made great progress in our fight against human trafficking, we must still come together to educate and help prevent others from falling victim to this horrific crime.
This month, and every month, I encourage all Texans to educate themselves about the dangers and signs of human trafficking and how to support survivors.”
