Mursau named to human trafficking task force

Rep. Jeff Mursau, R-Crivitz, has been appointed to the newly created 15-member state bipartisan Task Force on Human Trafficking.

“I am thankful to have been chosen to serve on this important committee because human trafficking impacts every community,” said Mursau. “While human traffickers will prey on any person they determine is vulnerable, it’s our children and teens who are the most susceptible.”

Currently, Mursau serves on the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Task Force. The task force has been working to identify the factors that contribute to missing and murdered indigenous women and the response from social service organizations.

“It’s imperative that we prevent vulnerable people from being exploited, and we need to protect victims and get them the services they need,” said Mursau. “I look forward to working with my legislative colleagues to identify policies and resources to help address this horrific reality.”
