The role of psychological coercion within human trafficking was codified in the Trafficking Victims Prevention Act (TVPA). Hosts Seth Daire and JJ Janflone give an overview of anti-slavery legislation leading to the TVPA and explain why coercion can be hard to prove. JJ also talks about Colorado House Bill 1072 which amends current Colorado law to add better victim protection and claim affirmative defense. They close with a few words about Patty Hearst.
