The Kentucky Statewide Human Trafficking Task Force is a joint project of the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General and Catholic Charities of Louisville, and funded by the U.S. Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Assistance and the Office for Victims of Crime.

Human Trafficking is a Kentucky Issue

Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry across the world with a presence in the state of Kentucky. Victims are male and female, adults and children, U.S. citizens and foreign born nationals; they are all races, ethnicities, and colors.
