Coalition to End Human Trafficking

Recently, Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate announced a statewide alliance of small businesses who are committed to ending human trafficking in Iowa. This group, called Iowa Businesses Against Trafficking (IBAT), are asked to complete two tasks each year designed to "educate employees, customers, and industry partners on the signs and impact of human trafficking in Iowa." They're also asked to empower others to take action. 

According to the press release, "Membership in IBAT is open to any business or nonprofit organization that operates in the State of Iowa and shares a commitment to taking steps to promote awareness of human trafficking and the Iowa Safe at Home program. Safe at Home is an address confidentiality program for survivors of human trafficking and other violent crimes. Both IBAT and Safe at Home are administered by Secretary Pate’s office."


Marsy's Law for Iowa has been a supporter of the Safe at Home program for many years.
