Attorney General Kamala D. Harris Launches New Website to Connect Californians in the Fight Against Human Trafficking

Friday, January 6, 2012
Contact: (415) 703-5837

SAN FRANCISCO -- Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued the following statement marking January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Attorney General Harris also announced the launch of the Human Trafficking in California website, a hub for information and resources designed to connect Californians in the fight against human trafficking. The website can be found at: http://oag.ca.gov/human-trafficking.

“This month, we are called upon to acknowledge the appalling existence of modern-day slavery – and to join together in the effort to eradicate slavery once and for all. This effort requires our collaboration to protect victims and hold traffickers accountable, as well as our vigilance to protect these abuses from occurring in the first place.

I have long been committed to fighting human trafficking. As District Attorney of San Francisco, I co-sponsored the California Human Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2005, which made human trafficking a felony in this state. Now, as Attorney General, I am making the fight against human trafficking a priority for the California Department of Justice.

I am proud to have many partners in this work, and to participate in the National Association of Attorneys General’s Pillars of Hope initiative to combat human trafficking.

The Human Trafficking in California website being launched today includes highlights of the important work being done across the state, as well as comprehensive resources to identify and report human trafficking. I encourage every Californian to visit the website, and to join in the fight against human trafficking.”
