End Human Trafficking
Reports of human trafficking have increased steadily in Georgia and nationwide over the past 10 years.
Chris supports several steps to eliminating this modern-day slavery: education, legislation, and restoration.
Under his leadership, the Office of the Attorney General will continue to partner with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, State Patrol, local law enforcement officials, the private sector and non-profit groups to educate our law enforcement officers, prosecutors, judges, school counselors, social workers, healthcare providers and the community on this crisis.
Chris was recently appointed to the National Association of Attorneys General’s Human Trafficking Committee. He also heads the “Demand an End” campaign on behalf of StreetGrace, a non-profit organization. This nationwide effort serves to increase public awareness through state attorneys general offices that this horrific behavior is fueled by demand, an issue that Chris tackled head-on in his first legislative session. Alongside partners in the Georgia Legislature, Chris fought to strengthen laws that target the buyers’ role in this modern-day slavery.
Chris believes that we must create an environment that is hostile for perpetrators.
“I have a 12-year-old daughter and a stepdaughter who’s in college, so this issue hits home for me. We cannot stop until this horrific crime is brought to an end.”
