We are here to provide you with the needed resources to start your case and report incidents before it can manifest and spread. The key is in action. If nothing is ever said or brought to someone's attention there is only so much that can be done. #ACTNow

"Trafficking cases present difficult challenges for the criminal justice system. For example, victims may be dealing with serious trauma related to domestic violence and sexual assault and reluctant to participate in prosecutions. Further, many adult or child victims of human trafficking are arrested and brought to court as defendants on prostitution-related charges. In the court system, we have established ongoing programs to educate our judges and court personnel about the complex dynamics involved in these situations. As Chief Judge, I also recognize that the courts may be uniquely positioned to intervene with trafficking victims, and our long experience with programs for domestic violence victims has taught us a great deal that could be helpful in that regard. We have already begun to explore approaches and collaborations focused on victims of trafficking."
