Join us for the Inaugural Regional Human Trafficking Summit

Human trafficking is a widespread crime and growing public health concern. This crime occurs when force, fraud, or coercion are used to compel a person into commercial sex acts or labor services against their will. 

Because fighting this crime requires bilateral and regional cooperation for the prevention, assistance, and protection of trafficked persons, a two-day summit will be held for representatives of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and District of Columbia to share best practices, learn from survivor experts, and explore multidisciplinary approaches to regional partnerships.

The goal of the summit is to lead a multilateral cooperation and synergy among these states as we work to ensure the safety
and freedom of trafficked persons.
