This week, a senior representative from the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (G/TIP) participated in a working summit sponsored by the National District Attorneys Association to develop child protection models for Juvenile Victims of Prostitution. Thousands of children are affected every day in the United States and around the world by the scourge of modern slavery, which may take the form of child prostitution.

G/TIP – which leads the interagency effort to end human trafficking in the United States and globally – is working with its partners in law enforcement, education, public health, state and local governments, and non-governmental organizations (including the faith-based community) to refocus America’s efforts to protect juvenile victims of prostitution and to prosecute those who exploit them.
