Task Force combats human trafficking 

DeKalb County District Attorney  has been appointed to the Georgians for Refuge, Action, Compassion, and Education (GRACE) Commission, a task force created by Georgia’s First Lady, Marty Kemp, to combat human trafficking in the State.

First Lady Kemp publicly announced the 22 members named to the Commission during a press conference on April 23 at the State Capitol.

“It is my pleasure to officially welcome all members to the GRACE Commission,” said First Lady Kemp. “I am confident that we have put together a great team of dedicated individuals who are well-equipped to shine a light on this terrible industry plaguing our state. I thank each member for giving their time and name to this effort and we look forward to the important work ahead.”

Boston said she was pleased to be selected to serve on the Commission.

“I am honored to have been selected to participate in this bold initiative and to contribute some of the ideas and insights we are using to combat this issue in DeKalb County,” said District Attorney Boston. “I appreciate Governor and First Lady Kemp’s commitment to making this issue a priority for our State and the communities we serve.”

The Commission is comprised of public officials, law-enforcement, for-profit and non-profit organizations, healthcare officials, and subject matter experts.
