The Department of Homeland Security cannot combat human trafficking alone. The President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (PITF) brings together federal departments and agencies to ensure a whole-of-government approach that addresses all aspects of human trafficking. The fight requires the contributions of all, including:
- Workers on the front lines – first responders, social workers, community volunteers, healthcare providers, teachers, and law enforcement;
- A range of organizations – private, public, and non-profit – who are committed to social responsibility and willing to speak out about this terrible scourge;
- Faith-based networks and houses of worship;
- Government entities that create and foster strong relationships to bring communities together and facilitate collaboration and the sharing of best practices; and
- Members of the public who, through the knowledge of their communities, can be the greatest asset in this fight.
Formal partnership with the Blue Campaign is not necessary to help combat human trafficking. The Blue Campaign and DHS components, such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, regularly provide training to state, local and tribal law enforcement communities and other organizations throughout the United States and abroad.
In addition, the Blue Campaign has an array of resources, including online training, available for individuals and organizations to use in the collective effort to combat human trafficking. Email us to indicate you or your organization’s interest in being added to our stakeholder list to receive notification of updates and events.
