Portland's Human Trafficking Task Force

About The Organization

The Oregon Human Trafficking Task Force (OHTTF) was first funded in 2005 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services with the following mandate: 

PROMOTE PUBLIC AWARENESS regarding the realities of human trafficking within the state of Oregon. 

PROVIDE TRAINING AND EDUCATION to Oregon citizens, professionals, and service providers regarding ‘best practices’ in identifying trafficking victims, connecting victims to critically needed services, and helping to bring human traffickers to justice. 

COORDINATE VICTIM RESOURCES, and further improve support services available to human trafficking survivors in the state of Oregon.

INVESTIGATE TRAFFICKING CASES and assist in the aggressive prosecution of human traffickers within the state of Oregon.

PROVIDE STATISTICAL RESEARCH to the Department of Justice in their ongoing effort to measure the scope of human trafficking within the U.S. and the sufficiency of the government’s response.

Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans (OATH) is the OHTTF statewide volunteer, education, outreach and awareness campaign.  We encourage Oregonians to learn about human trafficking, share your knowledge, and create practical solutions in your community. Learn more about OATH here.
