Human Trafficking Annual ReportThe U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking recently released the first Annual Report on human trafficking written by survivors. Although this report is not specific to justice involved women, it provides “actionable recommendations to the U.S. government for its work both nationally and internationally, as it collaborates with state and local governments.” An article from The Huffington Post summarizes five recommended areas from the report to enable the federal government to better support trafficking survivors.

Recommendations:

  1. Ensure Law Enforcement Is Trained In Anti-Trafficking
  2. Create Public Awareness Campaigns That Reflect Diversity Of Trafficking Victims
  3. Provide Support Services To All Types Of Trafficking Survivors
  4. Increase Funding To Investigate More Industries For Labor Trafficking
  5. Help Survivors Get On Track For Success In Work And Life
