A Discussion with Governor Abbott’s Child Sex Trafficking Team
December 3, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us on Tuesday, December 3rd for a discussion with Governor Abbott’s Child Sex Trafficking Team.
Governor Abbott has proclaimed January as Human Trafficking Prevention Month in Texas, urging Texans to work together to protect the vulnerable, help victims find healing, and bring offenders to justice. While Texas is a national leader in the fight against human trafficking, human trafficking victims, including the estimated 79,000 child and young adult victims of sex trafficking in Texas, are counting on all of us to ramp up our efforts to help them find freedom and justice.
The Governor’s Child Sex Trafficking Team (CSTT) exists to educate and empower Texans to do just that. Our vision is a state where children are free from sexual exploitation. Our mission is to help prevent victimization, to identify and recover victims, to provide them coordinated services that help them heal and thrive, and to bring them justice by holding their exploiters accountable. We do this by working with public and private partners across Texas and, because human trafficking knows no boundaries, beyond Texas.
