The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 provides “the tools to combat trafficking in persons both worldwide and domestically. The act authorized the establishment of the State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons and the President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons to assist in the coordination of anti-trafficking efforts.”
The Trafficking Victims Protection Act expired in September 2017. We need to urge Congress to reauthorize this bill to continue the fight against modern day slavery in the United States.
