Anti-Trafficking in Persons

Look Beneath the Surface – Human Trafficking is Modern-Day Slavery

Look Beneath the Surface

In October 2000, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA) made human trafficking a federal crime. TVPA prevents human trafficking overseas, protects victims and helps them rebuild their lives in the U.S. In addition, it allows for prosecution of traffickers under federal penalties. This is the first comprehensive federal law to protect victims of trafficking and prosecute their traffickers.

The Anti-Trafficking in Persons (ATIP) program supports several initiatives in the fight against human trafficking.
