The President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking (PITF) is a cabinet-level entity created by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA) to coordinate federal efforts to combat trafficking in persons. The PITF meets annually and is chaired by the Secretary of State. On March 15, 2012, President Obama issued a statement on the meeting of the PITF. He called on his cabinet to strengthen federal efforts to combat human trafficking and to expand partnerships with civil society and the private sector.
