No comments

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody was chosen by the National Association of Attorneys Generals to lead a national committee as Co-Chair, focusing on anti-human trafficking policies and services for survivors. The national committee provides a forum for state attorneys general to collaborate on issues related to human trafficking and promote best practices to combat trafficking and assist survivors.

The Human Trafficking Committee focuses on facilitating education, investigation, outreach, prevention, prosecution, and victim services protection. The committee will also disseminate information on emerging issues and practices in the fight against human trafficking.

“Ending human trafficking in Florida is one of my top priorities, but we can’t achieve this lofty goal by working within our state borders alone. That’s not how traffickers operate, so we too must break down barriers and work together,” said Moody. “I am thrilled to help lead the National Association of Attorneys General Human Trafficking Committee. The members of this prestigious committee will work in unison—to share ideas and strategies for combating human trafficking and saving lives.”

Moody has been a champion of anti-trafficking legislature during her term as Attorney General, bringing pressing issues regarding trafficking in the state to the center of focus. In January, Moody launched the 100 Percent Club, an initiative recognizing Florida businesses and organizations that commit to training their employees on how to spot and report suspected human trafficking.
