Federal Anti-Trafficking Laws

The Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000 is the first comprehensive federal law to address trafficking in persons. The law provides a three-pronged approach that includes prevention, protection, and prosecution. The TVPA was reauthorized through the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2003), 2005, and The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008.

Under U.S. federal law, “severe forms of trafficking in persons” includes both sex trafficking and labor trafficking and can be found at http://uscode.house.gov/.
