National Strategy to Combat Human Trafficking (January 2022)   [open pdf - 619KB]

From the Document: "Under the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (JVTA) of 2015, the Department of Justice (Department or DOJ) is required to implement and maintain a National Strategy to Combat Human Trafficking (Strategy). The Department's Strategy will be implemented under the direction of the National Human Trafficking Coordinator (NHTC) designated by the Attorney General in accordance with the Abolish Human Trafficking Act of 2017. This Strategy aims to strengthen capacity and coordination within the Department to advance shared priorities in combating human trafficking. In keeping with the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended over the past two decades, and the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons Especially Women and Children, the Strategy focuses on efforts aligned with the 'three Ps' paradigm of 'protection' of victims of trafficking, 'prosecution' of human trafficking cases, and 'prevention' of human trafficking. The paradigm emphasizes the importance of partnership, enhancing collaboration at the federal, state, local, Tribal, and territorial levels and with external partners to improve results. This paradigm also aligns with the four pillars of 'The National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking (National Action Plan),' released by the White House in December 2021. This Strategy includes both DOJ initiatives that complement broader U.S. government-wide federal anti-trafficking efforts, as well as activities coordinated with other agencies."
