Title

A Proclamation In Recognition Of Human Trafficking Awareness Day - January 11, 2018.

 

 

Body

 

Staff Recommends: Presentation of Proclamation.

 

 

Explanation:

 

Human trafficking is a horrible crime targeting both females and males for labor and sex.  The unsuspecting victims are promised a life of hope and greater opportunity.  Instead, through violence and intimidation, traffickers enslave these individuals and illegally benefit by them. 

President Trump’s administration continues to work to drive out human traffickers and signed an Executive Order to dismantle transnational criminal organizations, including those that perpetuate the crime of human trafficking.  The Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons has enhanced collaboration with other nations, businesses, civil society organizations, and survivors of human trafficking.  The Department of Health and Human Services has established a new national training and technical assistance center to strengthen our healthcare industry’s anti-trafficking response.  The Department of State has contributed $25 million to the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery, because of the critical need for cross-nation collaborative action to counter human trafficking.

The proclamation will be accepted by Nancy Fowler.
