Background

The Trafficking Victims Protection Act, originally passed in the year 2000, is the United States' groundbreaking legislation to end human trafficking and provide much-needed assistance to human trafficking victims. This bill emphasizes a victim-focused approach to combating human trafficking, while also strengthening restitution to the victims of human trafficking. Critically, a number of new provisions specifically add protections for children. Click below to learn more about this important legislation.
