FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 7, 2018

National Survivor Network Praises the White House’s Announcement of Intent to Appoint Survivors of Human Trafficking to be Members of the U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking.

The National Survivor Network (NSN) would like to thank the administration for the appointments of the nine survivors to the U.S. Advisory Council on human trafficking as released by Press Release on March 5th. We congratulate the eight members of the NSN appointed to the council. These appointments show a level of commitment in the attempt to eradicate trafficking in persons in the United States as well as pulls in some of the strongest national leaders in the U.S., it is an honor and a privilege for survivor leaders to play a critical role and work closely with the United States government to end the scourge of trafficking in our own backyard.

The U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking has been a priority to the NSN from its inception. It ensures that survivors of human trafficking are recognized as the experts they are and have a forum to provide information and advice to government agencies working to combat all forms of human trafficking.

NSN would like to see more appointments to fulfill the council of all 14 members; however, we believe this is a noble and appreciated start. Thank you for your continued commitment to the issue and we look forward to assisting in the progress the U.S makes.
