All information was collected and shared from The Polaris Project which operates the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline. https://polarisproject.org/policy-and-legislation/
The landmark Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 laid the groundwork for the federal response to human trafficking. In the years since, Congress has built on this foundation, honing and expanding the U.S. strategy to combat sex trafficking and labor trafficking through a holistic, multi-agency approach. Polaris works with allies to shape, support, and share innovative state, federal and local laws and policies that are driven by data, based on survivor experience, and focused on expanding accountability for sex and labor trafficking.
