Report Finds That Raids Are Not an Effective Tool Against Human Trafficking
Date:1/9/2009

A better way to help leave my situation would be anything that didn't involve the police."

"Anti-trafficking efforts should be community-based, led by people familiar with sex work and other sectors where there is vulnerability to trafficking, such as domestic work, agricultural labor, and service sectors, people who have experienced trafficking, social service providers, and immigrants rights advocates," said Andrea Ritchie, Director of the Sex Workers Project. "This kind of approach would not only be more effective, but would build community and empower people who have been trafficked rather than subjecting them to the additional trauma of raids, arrests, and detention."

People interviewed for the report included 26 service providers from around the country, 5 law enforcement personnel, 12 immigrant women who had been trafficked into sex work and 3 immigrant women trafficked into domestic labor and other forms of work. The women whose stories are featured in the report came to the US from Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America.
