Human Trafficking: Proposals to the White House

A White House faith-based advisory council in a report on human trafficking urged the Obama administration to raise awareness about the problem overseas and domestically.

The report released Wednesday by the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships said the administration needs a national call to action and should press government agencies to make human trafficking a priority by dedicating more staff and resources to the issue.

It also called on the administration to recruit community groups into spotting and reporting human trafficking.

The White House welcomed the recommendations as "thoughtful."

"The council’s recommendations demonstrate the commitment of a distinguished set of civic leaders to strengthen and expand partnerships with government to end the scourge of modern-day slavery," the White House said in a statement.
