What we do

“Human Trafficking is a pressing global concern and a multi-faceted subject of academic inquiry. Whether investigating its complexities for purposes of political advocacy, global understanding, and/or critical scholarship, human trafficking is a reality we must engage and explore through its many manifestations.”
– Hillary Khan, Director

The Center for the Study of Human Trafficking – South-Central Pennsylvania was founded in order to share how human trafficking impacts our region, the U.S., and beyond. On this website, you will find stories, resources, and statistics centered around improving the plight of those suffering in silence.
