Alliance for Children in Trafficking

NAPNAP Partners for Vulnerable Youth’s (NPVY) first multi-year initiative is the Alliance for Children in Trafficking (ACT). We chose to focus on children recruited into labor and sex trafficking because of its unimageable harm, lack of prevention efforts and dramatic shift in recruitment tactics in the U.S. We seek to bring partners who are passionate about child health and wellness together to prevent the trafficking of minors while improving the quality of life for survivors. We applaud the work of the many organizations already working in human trafficking, and know we can contribute more in the pediatric healthcare arena. Learn more.
