About the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000

The Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000 established methods of prosecuting traffickers, preventing human trafficking, and protecting victims and survivors of trafficking. The act established human trafficking and related offenses as federal crimes. The Reauthorization acts of 2003, 2005, 2008, 2013, 2015, and 2017 further established federal legislation and guidelines for addressing human trafficking nationwide.

The TVPA defines sex trafficking as: 

the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, obtaining, patronizing, or soliciting of a person for the purposes of a commercial sex act, in which the commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age. 

Labor trafficking is defined by the TVPA as: 

the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purposes of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.


A picture is worth a thousand words. 

When designing this website, we intentionally chose to use abstract images and silhouettes to feature. This intentionality reflects our commitment to victim-centered, survivor-informed care. We do not use pictures of victims or stock images portraying victims because we know that pictures are subjectively interpreted and could be used to sensationalize the horrendous crime of human trafficking.
