Task Force to Eradicate Human Trafficking
Human trafficking is a global scourge that touches all aspects of an economy. However, businesses have proved to be an invaluable resource in efforts to stop human trafficking.
Composed of Chamber member companies, the mission of the task force is to educate stakeholders, lawmakers, senior government officials, and the public about best practices in supply chain management and identify strategies to combat human trafficking.
Companies with global operations and business partners develop detailed and effective programs to address human trafficking. The task force convenes meetings where stakeholders discuss their initiatives and partnerships with non-governmental organizations.
