Chad F. Wolf

Acting Secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Description

The U.S. government has historically devoted significant resources to combatting human trafficking. This global challenge poses such significant threats to security and human rights that many actors in the U.S. government are compelled to respond. This is why the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is releasing its first Strategy to Combat Human Trafficking, the Importation of Goods Produced with Forced Labor, and Child Sexual Exploitation. The strategy focuses on preventing these exploitative crimes, protecting victims, investigation and prosecuting perpetrators, partnering with the homeland security enterprise, and the enabling the Department of Homeland Security through organizational improvements to combat these illicit activities. Please join us at The Heritage Foundation for a conversation with the Secretary to discuss DHS’s role in combatting human trafficking.
