What is the Annual Human Trafficking Summit?

Florida’s Statewide Council on Human Trafficking (Council) was created through legislation in 2014. This 15-member Council, chaired by Attorney General Moody, builds on existing state and local partnerships working to combat human trafficking. Members of the Council include law enforcement officers, prosecutors, legislators, as well as experts in the fields of health, education, and social services. 

One of the duties of the Council is to hold an annual statewide policy summit with an institution of higher learning. Leaders in our state are committed to making Florida a zero-tolerance state for human trafficking. Learning opportunities created at the Summit will allow Florida to continue working to protect victims, prevent trafficking, and prosecute traffickers. 

The Summit brings together local, state, and national leaders working to eradicate all forms of trafficking. Breakout sessions include recent updates and developments in the following areas: 

  • Legal and Law Enforcement 

  • Service Delivery 

  • Policy and Research 

  • Medical and Healthcare 


Who should attend?

Concerned citizens and professionals from law enforcement, juvenile justice, corrections, victim services, educational institutions, local governments, religious and social services, and labor and employment relations should attend the Summit.

Due to the delicate nature of the subject matter, it is highly recommended that participants be over the age of 18 years old.
