Mayor's Office

Office of Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence

Mayor Sylvester Turner
The 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 2020, the trafficking division of the Mayor’s Office was expanded to also address domestic violence.

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.
