SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

The Florida Alliance to End Human Trafficking is a nonprofit organization created by the Florida Legislature to provide funding, support and assistance to the statewide effort to end human trafficking.

Human Trafficking is a crisis within the United States

Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Human trafficking (or modern-day slavery) is the second-largest global industry – behind illegal drug trafficking – and enslaves tens of millions of women, children, and men worldwide. It can happen in any community and victims can be of any age, race, gender, or nationality.

Oftentimes human trafficking is perceived as an international issue rather than a problem within the United States.  However, according to the National Trafficking Hotline, it becomes clear that there is a national crisis at hand.

We must bring attention to the problem of human trafficking within the state of Florida.

OUR HISTORY OF ENDING HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

The Florida Alliance to End Human Trafficking was created by the Florida Legislature in 2019 (HB 851) and was approved by the Governor on June 26, 2019. The legislation was sponsored by Senator Lauren Book and Representative Heather Fitzenhagen.

The legislation addressed human trafficking through a wide range of policies. It required the Department of Legal Affairs to establish a direct support organization (DSO) to support the Statewide Council on Human Trafficking. The DSO board of directors must be thirteen members, including:

  • Two members appointed by the executive director of FDLE, both of whom must have experience and knowledge in the area of human trafficking.
  • Three members appointed by the Attorney General
  • One of whom must be a human trafficking survivor.
  • One of whom must be a mental health expert.
  • Four members appointed by the President of the Senate.
  • Four members appointed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
