Public Management Bulletin #18

Human Trafficking of Minors and Young Adults: What Local Governments Need to Know

Friday, December 20, 2019

Children, teens, and young adults interact with local government departments and services in a variety of ways. Local government staff are uniquely positioned to protect vulnerable children and young adults from being exploited by human traffickers, to identify the indicators of trafficking, and to intervene in trafficking situations when appropriate.

Organized into three parts, this bulletin contains foundational information that local government staff—working independently or with others —can use to (1) create a process for educating both staff and citizens about human trafficking and (2) strengthen work processes and/or policies to better address the problem.

This 36-page bulletin was written by Margaret Henderson, Sara DePasquale, Nancy Hagan (a member of Project NO REST at the UNC School of Social Work), and Christy Croft (Prevention Education Program Manager at the N.C. Coalition Against Sexual Assault).
