Human Trafficking In California: The Final Report of the California Alliance to Combat Trafficking and Slavery Task Force.

In September 2005, California enacted its first anti-traffi cking law (Assembly Bill 22, Lieber) to make human traffi cking a felony in this state and assist victims in rebuilding their lives. This law, as well as Senate Bill 180 (Kuehl, 2005), also established the California Alliance to Combat Traffi cking and Slavery (CA ACTS) Task Force to conduct a thorough review of California’s response to human traffi cking and report its fi ndings and recommendations to the Governor, Attorney General and Legislature. The law charged the Task Force with examining whether we are doing enough to identify the extent of human traffi cking in this state, protect and assist victims, prosecute traffi ckers and prevent this violation of human freedom.
