Trafficking and Prostitution

The Center Works to Improve State Law and Federal Policy on International Trafficking of Women and Girls

April 19, 2010

For the first time in 2010, the US Department of State’s Trafficking in Persons Report will assess efforts made by governments and others within the United States to address trafficking. Because the Center has led the way to assist state legislators in the 50 states to develop effective laws and policies, we believe that our comments to the Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Office will be invaluable to this assessment.

NCRW Fact Sheet: Ending Violence Against Women--An Imperative for a Healthy Nation

Ending violence against women should become a national imperative. Policies and laws need to be strengthened both at the national and state levels to protect women, girls, LGBT people, and other marginalized groups. Such measures are key to national security and building a thriving, healthy society.

NCRW Fact Sheet: Under the Radar--Immigrant Women and Violence

Violence against immigrant women is nearly impossible to estimate with any precision. Immigration status, cultural and language barriers, and economic hardship intersect and often prevent women who experience violence from coming forward. The two most common forms of abuse experienced by immigrant women are intimate partner violence and exploitative work conditions.

NCRW Policy Brief: Violence

Ending violence against women needs to become a national priority. A safe society for women and girls is a prerequisite to enable them to lead productive and successful lives.

NCRW Fact Sheet: The International Violence Against Women Act

I-VAWA would apply the force of U.S. diplomacy and provide $1 billion over five years to institute measures to prevent the abuse and exploitation that affects so many women worldwide.
