Human Trafficking Committee

Mission Statement

Human trafficking, also known as “modern day slavery,” is a violation of basic human rights and core American values. Human trafficking occurs when a person is forced or tricked into involuntary labor or commercial sexual activity, or when a child is involved in commercial sexual activity. The United States is a source, destination, and transit country for both labor and sex trafficking, with these crimes increasingly tied to organized crime and gang activity. There are estimated to be 21 million victims worldwide, generating $150 billion in annual illegal profits. The attorneys general have established the NAAG Human Trafficking Committee to investigate and promote best practices for combating trafficking at a state level. These include law enforcement and prosecution strategies, educational outreach efforts, and alliances with partner agencies and non-governmental organizations. The Committee has compiled several resources as part of its initiative to combat human trafficking in the United States.
