February marked our one year anniversary of blogging at the HTC. We were nominated for “Best Blog” in the Duck of Minerva contest, explored a wide breadth of topics on and surrounding trafficking, and continued our efforts in publishing, high-quality, researched-focused content.
If you weren’t able to keep up with us, don’t worry! Below we’ve rounded up February’s posts. And if you’d like our blog delivered right to your inbox, sign up for our mailing list here.
