Dear Fiends & Partners in the Fight against Modern Slavery,
As we begin to prepare for the 2016 Trafficking in Persons Report, we are eager to hear from you – our trusted partners – to better understand the human trafficking situation on the ground around the world.
Through your work on the front lines to combat trafficking, you see firsthand how governments are confronting this challenge. You know where practices are successful and where efforts are falling short. Whether you’re contributing to this struggle halfway around the world or right here in the United States, your observations will be critical to the Department of State as we draft the 2016 Report. I therefore urge organizations, as well as survivors of human trafficking, survivor networks, and survivor-led organizations, to help strengthen the 2016 Report by responding to this call for information.
We are particularly interested in hearing about best practices and lessons learned in protecting populations most vulnerable to human trafficking across different communities and regions of the world. We welcome information about new trends in human trafficking; examples of challenges in prosecution, protection, and prevention efforts; and stories about promising practices in incorporating survivor input into policy-making efforts.
I also invite you to submit current public awareness campaign materials, such as trafficking-related photos, billboards, posters, murals, or art. These may be featured (with credit) in the 2016 Report. Please submit these in high resolution (1 MB or more) digital image files.
The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. on January 19, 2016. Additional details for submitting information, as well as the Federal Register Notice, can be viewed here.
I’m confident that, as always, your contribution will make for a Trafficking in Persons Report that sets the standard for reporting on government efforts to combat trafficking worldwide. I look forward to receiving your input as we work together to combat modern slavery.
