Senators Catherine Cortez Masto and Lisa Murkowski Introduce Bill to Combat Human Trafficking of Native Americans and Alaska Natives


Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), who has long worked on behalf of sex trafficking survivors, has just introduced a new bill with Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) that would establish an advisory committee to combat human trafficking of Native Americans and Alaskan Natives. The End Trafficking of Native Americans Act's proposed committee would include local law enforcement, tribal leaders, advocacy organizations, and at least one Native American survivor of human trafficking who could make recommendations to the DOI and the DOJ. It would also develop practices for law enforcement and tribes to identify victims and share information on trafficking between agencies.
