Hillary Clinton releases human trafficking report

Hillary Clinton, June 16, 2009 

This morning, Secretary Clinton released the State Department's ninth annual "Trafficking in Persons Report." The report assesses more than 170 countries on what efforts their governments are taking to stop human trafficking.

To learn more about sex trafficking specifically, I recommend the recent book Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery, by Siddharth Kara. (A portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to Free the Slaves.)
