Parliamentary Task Force on Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is the second largest criminal enterprise in the world, trapping millions of people throughout the world in sexual exploitation, labor exploitation, forced marriage and other forms of modern slavery. The Parliamentary Task Force on Human Trafficking is a consortium of Parliamentarians, government leaders, and lived-experience experts who are committed to creating policy solutions to stop one of the greatest humanitarian crises in the world today, human trafficking.
