The Clark-Fox Policy Institute (CFPI) at the Brown School and the Human Trafficking Collaborative Network (HTCN), a multidisciplinary group housed in the university’s Institute for Public Health, brought to Capitol Hill a delegation of Missouri researchers, advocates, law enforcement representatives, service providers and survivors to bring attention to the dehumanizing industry of trafficking in persons.

“With this panel of dedicated experts and our bipartisan legislative partners, we will continue to inform and educate policymakers about the supports needed to aid human trafficking survivors as they rebuild their lives,” said Gary Parker, CFPI director. Parker served as co-moderator for the panel with Rumi Kato Price, HTCN founder and professor of psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
