Trafficking in Persons Council


The Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Council is convened by the Commission on Women, Children and Seniors and chaired by the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV). The Council was formerly run by the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women. The council consists of members from a diversity of backgrounds, including representatives from state agencies, the judicial branch, law enforcement, motor transport and community based organizations that work with victims of sexual and domestic violence and immigrants and refugees, and address behavioral health needs and social justice and human rights.

The TIP Council is responsible for:

(1) Holding meetings to provide updates and progress reports;

(2) Identifying criteria for providing services to adult trafficking victims;

(3) Identifying criteria for providing services to children of trafficking victims; and

(4) Consulting with governmental and nongovernmental organization in developing recommendations to strengthen state and local efforts to prevent trafficking, protect victims of trafficking, and prosecute traffickers.

The TIP Council runs the End Demand campaign which seeks to;

1.      Raise public awareness,

2.      Engage local and state leaders in anti-demand efforts,

3.      Support law enforcement in anti-demand initiatives, and

4.      Improve public policy aimed at curbing demand.
