Private Sector and Individuals

Partnership with the private sector and individuals is essential to address the challenges of human trafficking. Accordingly, many corporations have played a critical role in supporting the blue heart campaign through marketing and advertising, mobilising much-needed resources in the fight for justice for victims and hosting gala fundraising events aimed at promoting the blue heart in the fight for justice for victims. See for example, Artists UNited Against Human Trafficking initiative, Music to Inspire initiative, Blue Heart gala event in Panama, Blue Heart fund-raising event in Vienna, and Interspar advertising.
