Senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump joined US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday for a meeting of the president’s task force to address human trafficking.
Looking business elegant for the meeting, Ivanka donned a black polka dots midi dress from Prada. She previously wore this dress last month at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, where she chaired the third American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting. The dotted piece is a silk dress that features a twirl pleated hem and golden button details down the front and across the waistline. It retails for $3,260 and still available for purchase at www.mytheresa.com.
Addressing the gathering, Ivanka began by asking members of the United States Advisory Council on Human Trafficking to stand up and introduce themselves in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The White House hosted the 15th meeting of the President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (PITF).
Created in 2000 by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, PITF is a Cabinet-level entity consisting of 19-departments and agencies across the federal government responsible for coordinating efforts to combat trafficking in persons. Each secretaries from the 19 departments and agencies explained during the 75 minute meeting outlining the progress their department is doing to stop sex trafficking, human smuggling and labor trafficking, as well as plans they have for the upcoming year.
.@POTUS pledged to be a voice for the voiceless, & there is no more vulnerable a population than victims of human trafficking. I was honored to join @SecPompeo & leadership across 19 USG agencies to coordinate & accelerate efforts to end this evil scourge. #EndTrafficking #PITF pic.twitter.com/Nl4lY2HRRs— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) October 29, 2019
According to the White House, organizations awarded grants by the Department of Justice to support human trafficking victims reported nearly 9,000 cases from July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018.
The last meeting of the PITF was held in October 2018 at the White House and included the U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking and a presentation of the Presidential Award for Extraordinary Efforts to Combat Trafficking in Persons. After each meeting, the task force releases a report, detailing each department’s progress toward accomplishing U.S. government priorities organized by ten strategic objectives.
Last year, President Trump became the first President to attend a PITF meeting. This year meeting will be the 2nd the Trump administration has held.
