“Denuncia La Trata” campaign launch with USAID Guatemala support

On the World Day Against Trafficking, Ambassador Luis Arreaga participated in the launch of the “Denuncia La Trata” campaign accompanied by representatives of the Human Rights Ombudsman, the Judicial Branch of Guatemala, the Public Prosecutor of Guatemala, the PGN Guatemala, SVET and the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare.

Guatemala is a place of origin, transit and destination for victims of trafficking and today we join the efforts of the Government of Guatemala to invite young people to take an active role in denouncing and avoiding possible cases of this scourge, which exploits the life of tens of millions of victims around the world.

USA supports initiatives to end trafficking in persons, a form of modern-day slavery that threatens international peace and security.
