ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – Governor Kathy Hochul today signed several pieces of legislation to provide support and resources for victims of human trafficking.

The governor’s office says these new laws will make sure that locations such as airports, bus terminals, hotels and truck stops feature information on human trafficking.







This will inform employees and visitors of crucial information about the practice of human trafficking.

The governor’s office also says the legislation will provide ways for victims to learn their rights and available resources.







“We must do everything in our power to end the scourge of human trafficking and protect thousands of individuals who fall victim to this abhorrent practice in New York,” Governor Hochul said. “New Yorkers should know the signs of human trafficking and be ready to lend a hand to stand up for victims. I’m proud to sign this legislative package, which includes campaigns that will spread awareness and help make a meaningful difference in thousands of lives.”
