To ensure that the policies behind efforts to combat human trafficking are both thorough and strong, we are regularly involved in the development of community and state laws. In fact, members of CCHT played a key role in the development of state legislation including:
Kansas HB 2034 – an anti-trafficking law that created the crime of commercial exploitation of a child, strengthened penalties for trafficking related offenses and created a victims’ assistance fund using fine collected by perpetrators.
Kansas SB 179 - legislation updating anti-trafficking laws to provide an affirmative defense for victims of human trafficking. This prevents victims from being charged for actions committed while under the control of a trafficker.
A primary and secondary prevention program for elementary, middle and high school-aged youth known as P4P: Thrive™. The P4P: Thrive™ curriculum aims to increase young people’s ability to practice healthy relationships, develop an age-appropriate understanding of abuse and exploitation (particularly in the form of human trafficking), inform young people of potential multidisciplinary resources in the community and provide an opportunity for them to demonstrate their own ability to combat abuse and exploitation.
a tertiary prevention and intervention model for youth who are either at risk or have already been subjugated to human trafficking.
Designed for survivors of human trafficking by survivors of human trafficking, this is a program intended to help survivors of sex and labor trafficking reclaim their lives, become self-sufficient and use their unique experiences to help fight trafficking. P2P includes a Survivor-Overcomer Group curriculum that, reflecting the Lotus Anti-Trafficking Model™ 8 Life Dimensions, aims to assist in empowering each individual’s ability to develop holistic health and prosperity; and explore their own potential leanings, gifts, talents, interests, and passions.
