The FSU Center for the Advancement of Human Rights (“CAHR”) has done leading work nationwide combating human trafficking. In 2004, the Center produced one of the first victim-based research assessments of human trafficking in the United States (“Florida Responds to Human Trafficking”) with funding from the Florida Department of Children and Families. Since that time, the Center has designed human trafficking curricula for federal and state agencies, assisted with the drafting of Florida anti-trafficking laws, and conducted several hundred trainings nationally and internationally for law enforcement officials and service providers. CAHR also provides ongoing pro bono legal representation for survivors of forced labor and sex trafficking.
