About the Human Trafficking Commission
In 2013, the Attorney General's Office collaborated with the Legislature to form the first Michigan Human Trafficking Commission. The Commission working with a victim-centered, trauma-informed approach emphasized that the men, women, and children who are trafficked are victims-not criminals. The 2013 Commission had two goals: assess the threat human trafficking poses to Michigan residents and develop policy recommendations to promote its exposure and prevention. The Commision's work resulted in a comprehensive legislative package that was passed in 2014, and took effect in early 2015.
Thereafter, a standing Human Trafficking Commission was created within the Department of Attorney General. Commission members are appointed by the Governor to represent various groups and public officials.Learn more about the Commission
