Human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, represents an imminent threat throughout the world, with an estimated 1.5 million victims in the U.S. alone.
With the creation of the Georgians for Refuge, Action, Compassion, and Education (GRACE) Commission through an Executive Order signed by Governor Brian P. Kemp and co-chaired by First Lady Marty Kemp, the State of Georgia is moving swiftly and comprehensively to eliminate human trafficking as a threat to people in every corner of Georgia.
It is one of the world's largest criminal enterprises, involving the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. And it is everywhere – including urban, suburban and rural communities throughout Georgia.
To support this statewide effort, the Department of Administrative Services (DOAS) Human Resources Administration (HRA) provides voluntary Human Trafficking Awareness Training for Executive Branch employees. A version of this training is also available to the general public. While the training recognizes that there are several forms of human trafficking, it focuses primarily on child sex trafficking and child sexual exploitation.
With awareness training, employees and others become better informed about how to identify signs of human trafficking; how to respond in cases where they suspect someone is a victim and how to protect children and others from this horrific crime.
In addition to awareness training, DOAS provides employees with access to resources, such as videos, posters, postcards and website links, to help promote human trafficking awareness in the workplace and in communities where public servants like you live and work. The goals are to protect children from this growing threat and to end human trafficking as a criminal enterprise in Georgia.
