Human trafficking is the issue that has been chosen as the 2011-2012 Presidential Initiative of the National Association of Attorney’s General (NAAG). Incoming NAAG President, Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna, made the announcement at the annual NAAG meeting. He has declared that he will form a Presidential Leadership Council of 10 additional Attorney Generals who will support this effort, with all 50 state Attorney Generals supporting the fight against human trafficking.

‘Pillars of Hope: Attorneys General Unite against Human Trafficking’ has established four pillars to focus on throughout the campaign:

1. Making the Case

2.Holding Traffickers Accountable

3.Mobilizing Communities to Care for Victims 

4.Public Awareness and Issue Advocacy
