Many individuals contributed to the development of the Human Trafficking Task Force e-Guide. We are grateful to Jack Blakey, Jean Bruggeman, Amy Fleishchauer, and John Vanek who provided their valuable subject matter expertise to update and enhance the e-Guide.
OVC believes that incorporating survivors’ voices in the development of victim-related guidance for the field is imperative. We would like to thank Suamhirs Piraino-Guzman and Emily Tocci for their unique insights and candid suggestions.
Special thanks go to the OVC and OVC TTAC staff, particularly Mary Atlas-Terry, Aashika Damodar, Ashley Garrett, and Lindsay Waldrop, who were instrumental in the coordination and review of this updated version of the e-Guide.
We also wish to acknowledge Florrie Burke and Nicholas Sensely for their significant role in developing the first edition.
