Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez is participating in a national summit on human trafficking in New York City this week to share strategies and information about Cook County’s groundbreaking efforts to combat sex and labor trafficking in Illinois.

State’s Attorney Alvarez is attending the National Summit on Human Trafficking and the State Courts which is being held today and tomorrow in New York. She is moderating discussions and meeting with leaders from the legal, law enforcement and social justice communities to examine the issues surrounding both labor and sex trafficking and to identify best practices from existing court programs at the state level.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office has become a nationally recognized leader on what has become known as the “Chicago Approach,” a strategy developed by Alvarez and her criminal justice and social service partners that not only increases penalties for human traffickers, but also places a heavy emphasis on rescuing victims of human trafficking and aiding them in their recovery.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share information about our ‘Chicago Approach’ on a national stage and also to exchange ideas with other leaders and look for new strategies to build upon our efforts.”

More than 250 people are attending the summit including teams from each state, the District of Columbia, and each of the U.S. territories.
