Organizations across the state are working to enhance awareness and increase prevention efforts, including the Michigan Human Trafficking Commission. The Commission works in collaboration with agencies, organizations, and individuals to address issues arising from human trafficking. They work to coordinate and integrate a multi-faceted, statewide solution that includes health care providers, social workers, child advocacy groups, law enforcement, faith-based organizations, legislators, and the judiciary system.
