Office for Victims of Crime: News From OVC

National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month

 

In his proclamation for National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month in January, President Trump states “This month we do not simply reflect on this appalling reality. We also pledge to do all in our power to end the horrific practice of human trafficking that plagues innocent victims around the world.”

Human trafficking, also known as trafficking in persons or modern-day slavery, is a crime that generally involves the exploitation of a person for the purpose of compelled sex or labor.

Since 2003, OVC, with funding authorized by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), has supported the development and enhancement of programs designed to provide a comprehensive array of culturally competent services to victims of human trafficking.

Access OVC’s resources during National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month and throughout the year.
