Why local governments should consider a more comprehensive approach to human trafficking
By Shunu Shrestha, Senior Fellow for the City of Minneapolis
Pathways human trafficking fellow Shunu Shrestha recently published a piece in American City and County. Shunu reflects on her first nine months in this position and relates experiences from her work that illustrate why a comprehensive, citywide approach to addressing human trafficking is important and should be considered by other cities. Among the benefits of working across city departments, Shunu shared how her colleagues on the city’s staff, who had never considered the connection between their areas of focus and human trafficking, are now eager and willing to address labor trafficking and sexual exploitation from their unique vantage points.
