Terminal 4 at New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport is to participate in the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Blue Campaign, #WearBlueDay, operator JFKIAT has announced.
Ahead of National Human Trafficking Awareness Day on January 11, JFKIAT and DHS partnered to raise awareness of human trafficking and generate an online conversation about the crime. Agents from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), an investigative arm of the DHS, spoke to customers and employees passing through the terminal about the campaign’s largest awareness initiative. This invites people from across the USA to participate by wearing a piece of blue clothing, taking a picture with other participants, and posting it on social media and tag @DHSBlueCampaign or using the hashtag #WearBlueDay.
“JFKIAT is proud to bring the Department of Homeland Security’s #WearBlueDay to T4,” said Roel Huinink, president and CEO of JFKIAT. “As a terminal dedicated to international travel that hosts over 21 million passengers each year, T4 is committed to educating and preparing our employees to identify victims of human trafficking and partner with DHS to limit this crime. Creating a safe and secure environment at T4 is our highest priority and we are excited to partner with DHS now and in the future on activities that can benefit our passengers.”
