About Human Trafficking Awareness

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.

With the creation of the Georgians for Refuge, Action, Compassion, and Education (GRACE) Commission  through an Executive Order signed by Governor Brian P. Kemp, co-chairs First Lady Marty Kemp and Attorney General Chris Carr are leading state efforts to swiftly and comprehensively eliminate human trafficking as a threat to people in every corner of Georgia.

Why Georgia Cares

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.
