Public Comments Requested for Federal Strategic Action Plan on Services for Victims of Human Trafficking

How does it work? Ideas, votes, best ideas go to the top.

The White House has released for public comment the new federal strategic action plan on services for victims of human trafficking in the United States.

The framework of the 5-year plan was developed in a collaborative federal effort led by co-chairs from the U.S. Departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security. It will ensure that all victims of human trafficking in the United States have access to the tools and services they need to escape exploitation and rebuild their lives.

The comment period provides an opportunity for stakeholders and experts within the anti-trafficking field, and civil society at large, to

  • review the plan;
  • make recommendations to strengthen the plan; and
  • suggest additional items that can be accomplished through collaboration with states, tribes, and local communities or partners.

Go to the comments page to read the plan and submit your idea. Comments are due by 11 p.m. Eastern, May 24, 2013.
