Chairman Craddick Convenes Energy Industry to Address Human Trafficking
Press Release
Tuesday, July 10, 2018

AUSTIN - Railroad Commission Chairman Christi Craddick yesterday joined Governor Greg Abbott's Child Sex Trafficking Team (CSTT) and energy industry representatives to raise awareness about human trafficking and how the energy industry can work to prevent and address the issue in Texas. The meeting was hosted by the Texas Oil and Gas Association in Austin. 

"The exploitation of Texans who are forced to work in abusive circumstances is intolerable," Craddick said. "I applaud the Governor's efforts to educate industry and the public on human trafficking and establish preventative networks and resources to better protect our citizens. I am committed to assisting the Governor in working with industry members to coordinate the distribution of information and resources for this purpose." 

The CSTT was established within the Office of the Governor in 2015 and works to prevent victimization, identify and recover survivors, provide coordinated services to help them heal and thrive, and bring those involved in these heinous crimes to justice.

For more information on human trafficking occurring in Texas and training resources available to the public, please visit the attorney general's website at https://texasattorneygeneral.gov/human-trafficking . 

If you suspect human trafficking, report it to the National Human Trafficking Hotline: 1-888-373-7888. If the situation is an emergency, call 911.
