2021 TIP Report: How is the U.S. Doing?

2021 TIP Report: How is the U.S. Doing?

Each year the Department of State
releases a comprehensive report on what human trafficking looks like around the
world. Divided into Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 2 Watchlist, and Tier 3, these
countries are measured by the laws around human trafficking and enforcement and
whether there is government sanctioned trafficking.

Though diving into each country’s analysis is illuminating on its own, for this piece we are going to look at the messaging from the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, how the U.S. is looking at prosecution, protection and …

psychological symptoms of trauma resulting from their repeated, intrusive, and
long-term abuse.

sexually exploited women and girls, emphasize that trauma recovery is critical
to a victim’s ability to repair and regain her life.

However, there are many challenges to meeting the
trauma-related needs of trafficking victims, especially since a comprehensive
approach, which includes building …

Familial Trafficking: When the Hand the Child Holds Harms Them the Most

Familial Trafficking: When the Hand the Child Holds Harms Them the Most

A hyper-awareness of child sex trafficking, by all accounts,
would imply that this world has somehow become safer for children because people
are speaking more openly about the pervasiveness of commercial sexual
exploitation of children and child sexual abuse.

But, the sad reality is, that is not the case. As more
people begin to focus on the “stranger danger” myths and kidnapping of children
the less likely they are going to see how child sex trafficking can operate in
reality.

Of course, anti-human trafficking organizations have designed
much of their education programs around the …
