Human Trafficking At Home

In June 2013, the FXB Center, in conjunction with the Kennedy School’s Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy, brought together leading experts from the public and private sector to discuss the development of a statewide strategy to combat human trafficking in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Meeting participants analyzed the scope of sex trafficking of minors in the state and considered how the legislative and political momentum that has resulted in new and progressive anti-trafficking legislation might be amplified by the FXB Center’s work.
