“The most lasting and effective way to eradicate modern day slavery, to secure a victim’s freedom is through the application of law. By holding traffickers and those who exploit trafficking victims accountable under criminal justice systems, the minimum standards of the TVPA (Trafficking Victims Protection Act) call for the criminalization of all acts of trafficking, as does the U.N. Tip (Trafficking in Persons) Protocol. Applying criminal laws provides society with a measure of justice and hope that the cycle of trapping additional victims can and will be broken. But we’re going to need some more good lawyers to help with this case.”
