"For more than a decade, Tennessee has shown itself to be a leader in the fight against human trafficking, and the Engage Together Project is another bold step in that ongoing work. As we better understand and catalog the vast resources available across the state, we’ll have a better sense of our strengths and our gaps, and be better positioned to help resource every victim as they take the first steps toward becoming a survivor. We can’t wait to see how this effort accelerates the difference we’re making – together as a state – in the fight against trafficking." David B. Rausch | Director, TBI
