Bloomberg School Project to Advance White House Fight Against Human Trafficking
President Barack Obama yesterday announced several new initiatives to combat human trafficking and publically thanked Johns Hopkins University for its work helping victims. The Administration also announced a partnership among the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Goldman Sachs Foundation and the Advisory Council on Child Trafficking.
In his remarks to the Clinton Global Initiative, the President listed a new assessment program, strengthened training for investigators, the development of new online tools, stricter rules for contractors, and increased services for victims among the many additional steps he has directed his Administration to take in the fight against what he called “modern slavery.”
According to a White House fact sheet released yesterday, the Administration’s new initiatives will augment other work being done to stop human trafficking including the Bloomberg School’s partnership with the Goldman Sachs Foundation and the Advisory Council on Child Trafficking.
