Sadly, it is estimated that there are 1.5 million human trafficking victims in the United States, most of which are children. The Federal Bureau of Investigation recently named Atlanta as one of the top fourteen cities with abnormally high rates of human trafficking. However, the issue is not limited to Atlanta. Human trafficking is taking place in every corner of our state.
The Georgians for Refuge, Action, Compassion, and Education Commission (GRACE) was created to combat the threat of human trafficking in the State of Georgia. The GRACE Commission is comprised of public officials, law enforcement, for-profit and non-profit organizations, faith-based institutions, and subject matter experts to tackle human trafficking, seek justice for victims, and hold bad actors accountable.
