How QAnon has Hijacked the Anti-Human Trafficking Movement

How QAnon has Hijacked the Anti-Human Trafficking Movement

Originally written for Good Faith Media by NC Stop Human Trafficking Founder Pam Strickland.

Pam Strickland, founder of NC Stop Human Trafficking

When I joined the anti-human trafficking movement, I was impressed by how apolitical it was.

The first federal legislation regarding human trafficking – the
Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 – was sponsored by 38
Republicans and Democrats and passed almost unanimously.

Republicans and Democrats could agree on one thing at least – human trafficking is evil and must be stopped.

Unfortunately, in today’s political climate, nothing …

How Does the U.S. Stack Up?

How Does the U.S. Stack Up?

As a country, the United States envisions itself as a leader in anti-human trafficking on a global scale. The 2020 Trafficking in Persons shines an honest light on where the United States is lacking in services, programming and policies.

Survivors Will Suffer Under Asylum Rule

Survivors Will Suffer Under Asylum Rule

Protections for trafficking survivors are being steadily eroded.

From cuts in funding to clandestine attacks on immigration rights for survivors, the current administration has celebrated their anti-human trafficking work in front of cameras while undercutting the very foundation of protections for survivors.

This administration is actively harming survivors, yet again, with the most recent attack on the institution of asylum in this country.

NC Stop Human Trafficking stands with protesters and activists

NC Stop Human Trafficking stands with protesters and activists

NC Stop Human Trafficking fully supports activists across
the country and the world.

When black and brown people are oppressed, we all are. When
communities of color are oppressed, exploitation flourishes.

Being an anti-human trafficking organization means we must
also be advocates against racism, policies that perpetuate abuse against people
of color and systems designed to oppress people of color.

Since the birth of our nation these systems of oppression
have been crafted to maintain control over entire communities.

These systems have led to violence or death, incarceration
and a thousand …

Wrong Arm of the Law: HSI Agents Should Protect, Not Abuse

Wrong Arm of the Law: HSI Agents Should Protect, Not Abuse

We all
know what big press conferences look like announcing the arrest of human
traffickers at the culmination of a years-long investigation. 

The common rhetoric around these conferences are the lauding of
law enforcement and prosecutors and inevitably addressing that victims were
“rescued.” 

It is difficult to fathom that some of those victims may have
needed deliverance from the officers sworn to protect them – but that was the
case in Arizona in 2018.

It certainly didn’t look like officers were involved in the sexual
assault of human trafficking victims during a press conference in September …
