- Rule of Law – ending impunity and delivering justice for all forms of trafficking through effective laws and policies, criminal proceedings, and civil remedies
- Business Engagement – eliminating forced labor from supply chains and investing in marketbased solutions
- Sustaining Freedom – ensuring recovery, reintegration, and economic opportunity for victims and the most vulnerable populations
