Human Trafficking Posters

As Human Trafficking Awareness Month comes to a close, the City Council passed an ordinance I called for mandating the posting and enforcement of human trafficking hotline posters in sexually oriented businesses, airports, bus stations, urgent cares and other locations. The data shows that women caught in the nightmare of human trafficking seek help in higher numbers when they see posters with hotline phone numbers. We are letting victims know that the City of Los Angeles is listening to them and doing everything we can to help end their suffering. I thank our amazing advocates at Journey Out & CAST Los Angeles and our partners Senator Henry Stern & L.A. City Attorney's Office for their dedication and diligence.
