The White House says next month will be dedicated to addressing the issue of human trafficking throughout the country.
President Trump is set to declare January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month as the administration continues efforts to combat the widespread issue.
In a statement, the White House claimed human trafficking is a modern form of the oldest and most barbaric type of exploitation, adding, it has no place in the world.
The White House claims sex and labor trafficking enslaves 25 million people.
Earlier this year, the Trump administration created a task force aimed at developing anti-slavery policies.
