DOT and Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking and the Department of Transportation

In March 2012, President Obama directed his Cabinet to redouble the Administration’s efforts to eliminate human trafficking. As many as 27 million men, women and children across America – are held against their will and trafficked into forced labor and prostitution.

DOT is working with other U.S. Government, agencies and with transportation stakeholders across the country on human trafficking initiatives.
