Message from the Mayor

Mayor Sylvester TurnerThe Houston Human Trafficking website is a resource for individuals to learn about human trafficking and find out what they can do to end modern day slavery in Houston. The website’s goal is to increase victim identification and protect our residents by raising awareness about human trafficking and facilitating partnerships with community stakeholders.
In my 26 years in the Texas Legislature, I saw a lot of progress made on this subject. I look forward to building on the current approach and expanding the efforts to solve this problem. You are an integral part of the work we are doing and I hope you will explore all of the features this website offers. I also welcome your input in helping us ensure that the website is accomplishing its goal. Give your feedback now by writing us at By working together as a community, we can end human trafficking.
