Every year the United States Department of State releases a Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report. The report details countries around the world and their compliance with anti-trafficking standards, assigning each country a rank and giving a detailed account of their efforts in the past year to combat human trafficking. Since 2004, the TIP Report has included a section in the beginning of the report honoring people as “Heroes Acting to End Modern Slavery.” This award has become more formalized over the years, and the awardees now come to the U.S.
The TIP Report Heroes Global Network aims to both publicize and connect the TIP Report Heroes. The resource itself is an incredible tool for educators, and for spreading awareness. The website is found at Tipaward.com.
