Trafficking in persons (TIP), also known as human trafficking, occurs across the United States and around the world. Traffickers exploit vulnerable individuals for commercial sex and forced labor in a variety of legal and illegal industries. For over two decades, Congress has legislated to counter human trafficking in the United States. This book provides a background on human trafficking and the federal government’s role in countering it. It specifically discusses the federal role in providing protection and services for victims and outlines federal grant programs authorized under the TVPA that provide funding for victim assistance.
