The U.S. Advisory Council is appointed by the President of the United States for two-year terms. The Council, established by the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (JVTA), provides a formal platform for trafficking survivors to advise and make recommendations on federal anti-trafficking policies to the President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (PITF). Each member is a survivor of human trafficking and together represent a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences and expertise.
