Iowa Network Against Human Trafficking and Slavery

The Iowa Network Against Human Trafficking and Slavery (NAHT) was Iowa’s first and remains the only statewide volunteer organization devoted exclusively to ending human trafficking in all its forms. The NAHT believes that human trafficking is modern day slavery where vulnerable people are forced or coerced into involuntary servitude for the purpose of financial profit for traffickers. We also believe that human trafficking is:
– A crime against the most basic human rights, affecting women, children and men.
– An underground activity about which there is limited information and knowledge.
– The result of complex issues with a global magnitude, involving social, economic, health, political and legal factors.
– Force or coercion need not to be shown for a minor to be considered a victim of trafficking.
