Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery that occurs in every state, including Maryland. We hope to educate the public by utilizing such resources like the NHTH, who works closely with service providers, law enforcement, and other professionals in Maryland to serve victims and survivors of trafficking, respond to human trafficking cases, and share information and resources.
