Arizona — under the leadership of the Arizona Human Trafficking Council — continues to be a nationwide leader in combating human trafficking.

The Governor’s Council was established in 2014 to:

  • Develop a comprehensive and coordinated victims’ service plan;
  • Evaluate and report to the governor statewide data on human trafficking;
  • Promote greater collaboration with law enforcement, state agencies and the community-at-large; and
  • Raise public awareness about victims’ services, restitution and prevention.

In December 2015, Governor Doug Ducey signed an executive order empowering the co-chairs, Cindy McCain and Director Gil Orrantia, and the council to keep up its successful work.  And, with the passage of meaningful legislation in House Bill 2238, House Bill 2374, House Bill 2454, House Bill 2553 and Senate Bill 1422, Arizona has strengthened laws to go after criminals who perpetrate this crime and to help victims recover.
