Human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. It's an imminent threat worldwide – including urban, suburban and rural communities throughout Georgia.
The Department of Administrative Services (DOAS) Human Resources Administration (HRA) provides voluntary Human Trafficking Awareness Training for Executive Branch employees to support Georgia’s statewide effort. It focuses primarily on child sex trafficking and child sexual exploitation, while recognizing several other forms. A version of this training is also available to the general public here
Awareness training enables employees and others to:
Identify signs of human trafficking
Respond in cases where they suspect someone is a victim
Protect children and others from this horrific crime
Resources are also available below to help promote human trafficking awareness in the workplace and in our communities. These include videos, posters, postcards, FAQs and more.
