Human Trafficking Task Force Demand Reduction Subcommittee


On November 21, 2011, Governor Patrick signed H. 3808, "An Act Relative to the Commercial Exploitation of People" into law. The law went into effect February 19, 2012. As part of this anti-human trafficking law, the Legislature created the Human Trafficking Task Force to address all aspects of human trafficking through policy changes.


     This free program will focus on "Demand" and will examine:

          • the nature and extent of human trafficking;

           • the detection, investigation and prosecution of traffickers; and

           • ways to curtail the demand side of trafficking through service

              development, demand reduction, system change,

              public awareness, and training.
