State of the State 2023 – Human Trafficking - presented by Brody Burks, Assistant Texas Attorney General, Austin TX
 
TX Attorney General (TXAG) does not have “original jurisdiction”. Must follow or be brought in by another entity. Few county entities have specialized expertise in Human Trafficking (HT).

The TXAG Human Trafficking group has significant resources that smaller cities/counties do not possess. e.g. investigative unit, specialized attorneys, federal counterparts, large HT law library, chairs the TX HT Coordinating Council

TXAG office works mainly on the law enforcement prosecution and demand reduction side of the HT spectrum.

Traffickers obtain victims by making false promises of safety, income, and/or love. They maintain control over victims through emotional and physical abuse and manipulation.
The purpose of this presentation is to provide basic information about labor trafficking and sex trafficking in our district and beyond; as well as to dispel common myths about human trafficking. The presentation is also intended to provide Rotary Clubs and Rotarians in District 5840 with information about the Mission and Focus of the D5840 Combat Human Trafficking Club; as well as suggestions about what each Rotary Club and Individual Rotarian can “DO” to Combat Human Trafficking.
 
If your club is interested in a human trafficking presentation or project, please contact us. We welcome the opportunity to work with other clubs to help eradicate this global phenomenon that impacts over 25 million people each year.
