More Florida, Less Other Things

Attorney General Bondi Raises Awareness About Human Trafficking

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.–Attorney General Pam Bondi launched a new webpage
dedicated to raising awareness about human trafficking and recent efforts
to make Florida a zero-tolerance state for human trafficking. Attorney
General Bondi worked with the Florida Legislature to pass laws that enhance
penalties and provide additional measures to stop human trafficking.  To

“Human trafficking is an abhorrent crime that exploits women, men and
children,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. “We now have tougher criminal
penalties and enhanced tools to help law enforcement, prosecutors and
regulators stop these criminal enterprises.”

Additionally, Attorney General Bondi will attend the Florida Children and
Youth Cabinet Human Trafficking Summit on Monday, Sept. 24.  The Summit is
intended to start a statewide conversation among community members,
students, advocates and professionals about the status of human trafficking
in our state.  For more information on the Summit, please visit

Human trafficking is a $32 billion industry that exploits women, men and
children.  Attorney General Bondi is dedicated to partnering with federal,
state and local leaders to end this crisis.  Attorney General Bondi’s
Office of Statewide Prosecution will prosecute cases of human trafficking
to the fullest extent of the law.
