President Releases Plan to Address Human Trafficking

The administration is looking for additional methods to stop it at the source.

On Friday, the White House released an updated National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking. The changes will seek to reduce the possibility of exploitation by improving workers’ rights and addressing issues such as gender and racial equality. The goal is to completely interrupt and stop the reliance on forced labor within the global supply chain. 

A statement from the administration said, “Updating the plan also involved paying close attention to core commitments on the part of this administration to workers’ rights, fair trade and ending forced labor in global supply chains, to support for underserved communities, and ensuring safe and humane migration, including by improving the screening process to more effectively identify victims of human trafficking.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For President Biden to be led by God to protect the vulnerable.
  • For God to empower Congress to pass legislation to eliminate human trafficking. 
  • That the president’s administration would serve the Lord’s purposes.
