#WhatIWouldMiss is a public-private partnership begun in 2015 to raise awareness about human trafficking among high school students through a peer-to-peer social media campaign, organized by President Lincoln’s Cottage, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the U.S. Department of Education. The campaign encourages teenagers to think about aspects of their daily lives that they would miss if they were a victims of human trafficking and share a post on social media answering that question, including a related fact about human trafficking.
On January 5, 2016, the partnership between President Lincoln’s Cottage and the two executive agencies was mentioned in a fact sheet released by the White House on the President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons:
“Additionally, Education and HHS formed a public-private partnership with President Lincoln’s Cottage to launch a peer-to-peer social media competition to raise awareness about human trafficking among high school students.”
