In this episode, Dr. Sandra Morgan and Dave Stachowiak introduce two previous federal prosecutors John Cotton Richmond and Victor Boutros to discuss the Human Trafficking Institute. They ask three questions that fall into anti human trafficking strategies: How do we make people less vulnerable to traffickers, how do we care for survivors, and how do we actually stop the traffickers. They both share that in order to stop it, they must start at the root of the battle. It is necessary to have an understanding of the laws and the books, political will to enforce the laws, and the capacity to enforce the law. Boutros shares that they will train specialized units to create a model of prosecutors and agents that are focused on human trafficking cases called the ACT Team. This episode challenges listeners to begin to think in innovative ways about how they can stop the crime at its source. It’s time to learn how to identity the traffickers, not just the victims, in order to be able to stop future exploitation.
