This week, Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes helped host the first global human trafficking summit. The event was hosted by the Attorney General Alliance, a bipartisan group of attorneys general and law enforcement officers in 48 states and territories of America.
Attorney General Reyes has been one of the leaders in the fight against human trafficking, and many other attorneys general have joined him in that effort. Human trafficking is the use of force, fraud or coercion to compel a person into commercial sex acts or labor against their will.
The following topics were discussed at the conference, government partnerships with private industry, liberating human trafficking victims and caring for them afterword, creating innovative policy to assist the fight against human trafficking, public awareness and collaboration across party lines.
Featured speakers included leaders and innovators from government, industry and even the entertainment world who offered inspiring information on how to deal with this global issue.
