Marie Waldron, State Assemblymember — Today, human trafficking is one of the fastest-growing criminal enterprises in the world, and it is happening right here in our own community. Each year, approximately 200,000 Americans are at risk of human trafficking.
January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month. In the 2019-2020 legislative session, I introduced House Resolution 7 to raise awareness of this terrible crime and how to prevent it.
In the Assembly, we have made it a priority to expand protections for victims of trafficking and increase penalties on those responsible. We must give law enforcement agencies the resources they need to stop and prosecute human traffickers.
