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 Council's duties is to hold an annual statewide policy summit. 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 survivors, advocates, legal representatives, law enforcement, service providers, health professionals, and other members of the public. Breakout sessions include recent updates and developments in the following areas

  • Legal
