Lighting Arizona Blue

Together through the collaborative work of the Arizona Human Trafficking Council, Cindy McCain, the McCain Institute, Arizona's law enforcement agencies and community stakeholders, Arizona is becoming a national leader in human trafficking awareness. 

Earlier this month, Governor Ducey directed the Arizona Capitol to be lit blue in recognition of these efforts. Arizona's state agencies joined the efforts to raise awareness:
