Combatting Human Trafficking 

The Trump administration’s human trafficking summit is happening tomorrow! The summit will be held at the White House and was organized in part by Ivanka herself.

The event is meant to shed increased attention to the issue of human trafficking – and President Trump is expected to propose a $42 million budget increase in February to combat the issue. 

The summit also falls ahead of the twentieth anniversary of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which was the first law passed marking this illegal trade as a federal crime in our nation.

Ivanka has made combatting human trafficking a primary goal of hers in the last year. Most recently, she toured two non-profit organizations in Georgia and stated that the “private sector needs to get involved with these issues.”

Unfortunately, a few major anti-trafficking organizations will not be in attendance because they feel the Trump administration has cut back on protections for trafficking victims. In contrast, Ivanka has said that her father is “committed to bringing the full force and weight of the U.S. government to solve the horrific problem of trafficking in persons.”

President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Attorney General William Barr are expected to be in attendance alongside the first daughter tomorrow.
