North Carolina Human Trafficking Commission
In 2014 JusticeMatters’ Executive Director, Libby Coles, was appointed by Governor McCrory to chair the North Carolina Human Trafficking Commission. Established by the General Assembly in S.L. 2013-368, the Commission was given broad powers to further anti-trafficking efforts in North Carolina. Among other accomplishments, the Commission has won approval for mandatory training on human trafficking for all certified law enforcement officers statewide in 2016.

North Carolina Coalition Against Human Trafficking
Our Executive Director serves on the Executive Committee for the North Carolina Coalition Against Human Trafficking (NCCAHT), a statewide network of public and private agencies and organizations that combats human trafficking at a systemic level.
As a member of the Rapid Response Team of the Triangle, JusticeMatters assists foreign national and U.S. citizen survivors of human trafficking with their legal needs and collaborates with service providers and law enforcement to ensure that our clients receive comprehensive case management, social services, and assistance navigating the complex criminal justice system.
Our staff is available to conduct community outreach and training for legal professionals, law enforcement, service providers, agencies, and groups so that together we can better identify and serve survivors of human trafficking in North Carolina.
