Institute Cited in People Magazine

By: MOLLY WICKER

The Institute was recently cited in an article published on People Magazine’s website on March 14, 2019, entitled “Detroit Tigers Pitcher Matthew Boyd Is Helping to Save Girls from Sex Trafficking in Uganda.”

The piece, which focuses on the athlete’s mission to combat sex trafficking in Uganda, shares data from the Institute’s website that focuses specifically on the country’s recent efforts to improve their judicial system.

In October, a group of participants from Uganda traveled to Washington, D.C. for the Institute’s first-ever Global Human Trafficking Academy, which included two weeks of intensive, skills-based training.

“One of the improvements they [Uganda] have made has been to their judicial process,” says the article, “which saw them have prosecutors, investigators, judges and police partake in special training about trafficking.”
