While the term “human trafficking” has often been accompanied by the belief that it is another country’s problem, human trafficking happens in all 50 states, even here in Arkansas. Great progress has been made, but there is still a long way to go in the process of eradicating trafficking in our state. Using research from Shared Hope International, the JuST Conference, national databases, and more, this thesis addresses specific areas that Arkansas can improve in their Next Steps toward ending trafficking.
