Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000!

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000. In commemoration, the Department of State declares 2020 the year of “Freedom First,” in recognition that human dignity, autonomy, and freedom are essential to the exercise of our rights and liberties. Delivering on unfulfilled promises of freedom for the millions of people whom traffickers exploit must remain a first priority for us all.
