Attorney General Eric Holder Speaks on Human Trafficking for the Frank and Kula Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture Series

 

Little Rock, Ark. ~ Tuesday, April 24, 2012

 

Here in the United States, we can all be encouraged by the fact that policy leaders – from both parties – are deeply committed to this effort. Early in his Presidency, President Obama declared January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, calling on our nation to acknowledge modern-day slavery and to recommit ourselves to stopping and preventing human trafficking. This call has been echoed by many other key, committed leaders – from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Congressman Frank Wolf of Virginia; by both Senators [Mark] Pryor and [John] Boozman; and by Governors, Mayors, Attorneys General, and District and County Attorneys nationwide. Let me assure you: the Department of Justice is committed – and I am committed – to answering this call.
