Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton unveiled the 2012 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report during a ceremony at the U.S. Department of State on Tuesday, June 19. As required by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), the TIP Report assesses governments around the world on their efforts to combat modern slavery. The 12th annual TIP Report includes narratives of 186 countries and territories. At the rollout event, Secretary Clinton also honored the 2012 TIP Heroes, men and women whose personal efforts have made an extraordinary difference in the global fight against modern slavery. The event was attended by members of the diplomatic corps, nongovernmental and international organization representatives, and anti-trafficking activists, including actress Jada Pinkett-Smith.
