The US government launched a new website with resources for victims of human trafficking.

It's part of President Trump's action plan to combat these types of crimes.

He signed it back in October.

The inter-agency effort includes funding opportunities, victim outreach, public awareness, and education.

According to the Trump Administration, 5,000 human traffickers were arrested in the last three years.
