Human Trafficking Position and Educational Curriculum

Position: The League of Women Voters of Texas is opposed to all forms of domestic and international human trafficking of adults and children, including sex trafficking and labor trafficking. We consider human trafficking to be a form of modern-day slavery and support measures to prevent the use of force, fraud or coercion to exploit a person for sexual or labor purposes, to prosecute traffickers and to protect victims.

LWV-Kerrville Area has developed a new community education curriculum on Human Trafficking for local Leagues to use. It has been approved by the Texas Education Agency for 4 continuing education credits for teachers.
