How Georgia is working to end human trafficking


Georgia has one of the highest rates of human trafficking in the country. We want to be the number one state in terms of fixing it.

Governor Brian Kemp and First Lady Marty Kemp have made this a top priority in their administration.

The Governor launched Georgia’s first-ever human trafficking prosecution unit and established the GRACE Commission to help fight human trafficking.

At the state and federal level, we have taken action to increase penalties on those who commit these heinous crimes and better assist victims in their recovery.

It’s clear that much more needs to be done. 

This week leaders from across the state joined the business community to discuss how we can work together to end human trafficking.

We all play a role in combating this horrific industry. Stay alert, and if you suspect human trafficking, call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 888-373-7888.

With everyone working together, I’m more confident than ever that we will be able to put human traffickers out of business in Georgia.
