Keynote speaker Attorney General Jeff Sessions echoes the sentiments of Associate Attorney General Brand, emphasizing the importance of the summit and the obscurity of human trafficking
“These numbers should be a wake-up call for all of us. It’s easy to overlook the problem because human trafficking victims are often hidden in plain sight.

They are compelled to perform domestic service, janitorial jobs, or farm work.”
