Our goal: to combat human trafficking through prevention, protection, prosecution, and partnerships


The Maryland Human Trafficking Task Force (MHTTF) is the state's primary organization that works to prevent trafficking, protect victims by providing them with the services they need, prosecute traffickers, and partner with a variety of organizations to eradicate the scourge of human trafficking from our communities.
