Human Trafficking has long been a hidden problem in New York state and the US.  In 2000, Congress passed the federal Victims of Trafficking and Violence Prevention Act (TVPA) and has since re-authorized it three times making important modifications.  In 2005, the US ratified the UN Trafficking Protocol.  This was followed by passage of the New York state Trafficking Victim Protection and Justice Act in 2007.  The New York law has been heralded as the most comprehensive law of its kind in the country.  Yet, relatively few cases have been prosecuted in any jurisdiction.  This program will provide an overview of what human trafficking is including in federal and state statutes, how it is often masked, and tools for legal professionals and courts to use in identifying and responding to this complex problem.
