2021 TIP REPORT HEROES GLOBAL NETWORK

 

Who are the TIP Report Heroes?

In the Unit­ed States, the land­mark fed­er­al leg­is­la­tion which defined and out­lawed the crime of human traf­fick­ing, the Traf­fick­ing Vic­tims Pro­tec­tion Act (TVPA), was first passed in 2000 and has been reau­tho­rized sev­er­al times. Every year since its pas­sage, the U.S. Depart­ment of State has released the Traf­fick­ing in Per­sons (TIP) Report. The TIP Report is the pri­ma­ry diplo­mat­ic and diag­nos­tic tool used by the Unit­ed States to guide rela­tions with for­eign gov­ern­ments on human traf­fick­ing. Through the TIP Report, the Depart­ment of State assess­es coun­tries based on their gov­ern­men­t’s efforts to com­ply with the “min­i­mum stan­dards for the elim­i­na­tion of traf­fick­ing” found in Sec­tion 108 of the TVPA. A coun­try is placed in Tier 1 if the gov­ern­ment ful­ly com­plies with the min­i­mum stan­dards. A Tier 2 or Tier 2 Watch List rank­ing indi­cates that the gov­ern­ment does not ful­ly com­ply with the min­i­mum stan­dards, but is mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant efforts to do so. Tier 3, the low­est rank­ing, is reserved for those coun­tries whose gov­ern­men­t’s do not ful­ly com­ply with the min­i­mum stan­dards and are not mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant efforts to do so. The TIP Report has become a pow­er­ful tool to advance anti-traf­fick­ing efforts around the world and is con­sid­ered by some to be the inter­na­tion­al gold stan­dard in pro­mot­ing anti-traf­fick­ing account­abil­i­ty by governments.

Since 2004, the Depart­ment of State has hon­ored indi­vid­u­als around the world who have devot­ed their lives to the fight against human traf­fick­ing. These indi­vid­u­als, “TIP Report Heroes Act­ing to End Mod­ern-day Slav­ery,” are pio­neer­ing NGO work­ers, law­mak­ers, police offi­cers, and advo­cates who are com­mit­ted to end­ing mod­ern slav­ery no mat­ter the cost. Since 2009, the TIP Report Heroes have been invit­ed to par­tic­i­pate in a State Depart­ment-spon­sored, two-week vis­it to the Unit­ed States, where the Sec­re­tary of State per­son­al­ly hon­ors them at the annu­al release of the TIP Report in Wash­ing­ton, DC. Fol­low­ing the event, the TIP Report Heroes trav­el to addi­tion­al U.S. cities to meet with their coun­ter­parts around the coun­try to share their sto­ries and engage on anti-traf­fick­ing efforts. The recip­i­ents come from diverse back­grounds, and share an incred­i­ble ded­i­ca­tion to assist traf­fick­ing vic­tims and bet­ter address this glob­al crime.
