Join a discussion with experts about one of the first comprehensive reports examining the efficacy of anti-sex trafficking law enforcement operations, commonly referred to as "raids," "stings," or "sweeps." Authored by the University of Southern California Gould School of Law’s International Human Rights Clinic, the report centers the voices and perspectives of persons who have been sex trafficked to ask: 1.Whether such operations meet the goals of the 2000 Trafficking Victims Protection Act; and 2.Whether they should remain the primary anti-sex trafficking tool used by the U.S. government.
