In January, Wisconsin Attorney Josh Kaul announced a new task force to enhance statewide efforts to combat human trafficking and provide support for survivors. The effort includes both law enforcement officials and victim service providers, who come together for a comprehensive approach to fighting these crimes, which have devastating impacts on adults and children in communities both large and small.

Shereen Siewert welcomes Brenda Bayer, human trafficking program advocate at The Women’s Community in Wausau, and Emily Zernick, victim services manager of the Wisconsin Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force, for a discussion on renewed efforts to help identify victims, connect them to support services and hold traffickers responsible for their crimes at the local, state, trial and federal levels.
