On Thursday, May 24, the DC FPC organized a local reporting tour to the U.S. District Attorney’s Office in the District of Columbia. This is the second in a series of local reporting tours and briefings that focus on how the U.S. combats human trafficking locally, domestically, and internationally in the run-up to the release of the Trafficking in Persons Report. It is also a follow-up to the international reporting tour on Combating Human Traffickig through Prevention, Prosecution & Protection (January 21-February 3). Journalists from Spain, France, China, Colombia, and The Bahamas participated in the briefing. NTN 24 (Colombia) and France 24 Spanish Service conducted one-on-one and on-camera interviews with Ms. Kenya Davis and Mr. Stuart Allen, Senior Assistant U.S. Attorneys in the Sex Offense Section and Co-Chairs of the D.C. Human Trafficking Task Force. The D.C. Human Trafficking Task Force was formed in 2004 to increase the prosecution of traffickers while identifying and serving the victims of this horrific crime.
