Much of IJM’s advocacy work on stopping human trafficking is focused on increasing the capacity of the U.S. State Department Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (often referred to as the TIP office). Established in 2001 by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, the TIP Office functions as the nerve center of the U.S. Government’s anti-trafficking and anti-slavery activities around the world and is one of the smallest but most effective of all U.S. foreign assistance programs.
