Dear friends and partners in the fight against human trafficking,

We are already beginning work on the 2024 Trafficking in Persons Report (TIP Report), and we need your assistance! Through your work on the front lines to combat human trafficking, you observe the way governments are confronting this challenge.  You know which practices are succeeding and where efforts are falling short.  We are eager to receive your insight to help us better understand the current trafficking situation on the ground, both here in the United States and around the world.

Your observations, assessments, and perspectives will be critical to the U.S. Department of State as we draft the 2024 TIP Report.  This “request for information” is essential to our work at the Trafficking in Persons Office, and we encourage all stakeholders within the anti-trafficking community to respond. Details on this request can be found in the Federal Register Notice here . Please also refer to the guide for submitting responses here. The deadline for submission is February 1, 2024.

As in previous years, we invite you to submit a wide variety of information. We want to hear about emerging trends in human trafficking and examples of governments’ successes or challenges in prosecution, victim identification and protection, and prevention efforts, including lessons learned. In addition, we invite you to share knowledge and contribute information on how governments have addressed trafficking in underserved and vulnerable communities. Are laws being enforced equitably? Do all communities have equal access to services? Have governments implemented any policies that further marginalized communities already overrepresented among trafficking victims? We are also particularly interested in hearing from you about examples of innovation, technology, and ground-breaking anti-trafficking practices that you feel have made a difference in your community or impacted broader anti-trafficking efforts.

Finally, if you would like to share any current public awareness campaign materials, such as trafficking-related photos, billboards, posters, murals, or art, in high resolution (1 MB or more) with us, these may be featured (with credit) in the 2024 TIP Report.

As always, your contributions will help us continue to make the TIP Report an impactful resource that sets the standard for reporting on government efforts to address human trafficking. Thank you for taking the time and effort to contribute to the TIP Report.

With appreciation,

Cindy Dyer
