Supervisors speak out against human trafficking 

Supervisor Carmen Chu has introduced a resolution co-sponsored by Board of Supervisors President David Chiu supporting the San Francisco Collaborative Against Human Trafficking, International Human Trafficking Awareness Day and the month-long campaign to bring awareness to the issue of human trafficking.

The resolution is expected to be voted on by the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

“San Francisco is a major transit point for traffickers,” the resolution says. The State department estimates that between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked to the United State annually for “involuntary servitude or modern day slavery.”

The resolution supports the efforts of the San Francisco Collaborative Against Human Trafficking month long awareness campaign that will end on Feb. 12, and also declares Jan. 11 International Human Trafficking Awareness Day in San Francisco.
