Council report addresses ‘demand side’ of sex trafficking scourge

The Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Council has released an annual report showing an increase in the trafficking of minor children.

The report was submitted to the Connecticut General Assembly on Jan. 11, 2017 and offers recommendations to state legislators on how to handle the demand for sex for pay.

“For many people, sex and labor trafficking bring visions of foreign places and people, but this idea is false. In reality, sex and labor trafficking are happening in the state, to Connecticut residents,” the report says.

The Trafficking in Persons Council’s End Demand Campaign seeks to;

  1.      Raise public awareness,
  2.      Engage local and state leaders in anti-demand efforts,
  3.      Support law enforcement in anti-demand initiatives, and
  4.      Improve public policy aimed at curbing demand.
