   Sex Trafficking in the United States
June 26, 2006

June 26, 2006

~This was an online event.~

The Government Innovators Network and the National Institute of Justice of the U.S. Department of Justice hosted this online event to examine human sex trafficking. Sexual exploitation of trafficked persons is widespread globally, and is increasingly recognized as a significant but largely invisible problem within the United States. Some estimates place the number of people trafficked into the country each year in the tens of thousands. Sex trafficking is a multifaceted threat that requires a comprehensive approach, including prevention measures, identification and prosecution of perpetrators, and protection of victims.

This forum assembled a variety of expert perspectives on the sex trafficking problem (bios). The discussion was moderated by Swanee Hunt, Director of the Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, and featured:

  • Ambassador John Miller of the U.S. State Department (slides)
  • Massachusetts State Senator Mark Montigny
  • Norma Hotaling, Founder of the SAGE (Standing Against Global Exploitation) Project (slides)
