Taskforce members meet virtually four times a year to collaborate and share updates about actionable policy solutions that can be implemented in our respective countries to stop human trafficking. Each quarterly meeting focuses on a different aspect of combatting modern slavery: Prosecution, Protection, Prevention and Partnership.
Topical Working Groups
Each Working Group is comprised of legislators, academics, attorneys, civil society organizations, business leaders, and lived experience experts who examine and strategically address a specific aspect of human trafficking with two primary goals:
- Increasing Global Awareness: Each Working Group educates Parliamentarians and decision-makers on a subset problem and its scope, regional variances, and challenges, equipping them to act as resources for peer leaders in Parliaments, Congresses, Governments, and other governing bodies around the world.
- Practical solutions, model legislation and policy: Each Working Group brings together ITHT members and key stakeholders (academics, attorneys, civil society organizations, business leaders, and lived experience experts) to collaborate on strategic regional and global policy solutions.
Regional Forums & Events
We specialize in facilitating comprehensive discussions on human trafficking, integrating the topic into the broader global security landscape at regional forums throughout the world several times a year. We also host policy discussions in Washington, D.C. and other major cities through a conversational dinner format with legislators, civil society organizations, lived experience experts and other stakeholders on various aspects of stopping human trafficking through policy solutions. By intertwining the issue of human trafficking with other timely concerns, we enhance the depth and relevance of our discussions, ensuring a lasting impact on both policy and public awareness.
Our organization is dedicated to launching strategic and multifaceted campaigns to combat the pervasive issue of human trafficking. We also provide statements that provide awareness and are designed to resonate with diverse audiences, from policymakers and law enforcement agencies to civil society organizations and the general public. By harnessing the potential of social media, online advocacy, and targeted outreach, we ensure that our campaigns reach the right audiences, amplify their impact, and inspire concrete action. We strive to mobilize communities, foster cross-sectoral partnerships, and galvanize public support.
