From the Desk of the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office

March 3, 2022

Iowa Businesses Against Trafficking (IBAT) is a statewide recognition and education initiative from the Iowa Secretary of State’s office. IBAT strives to empower businesses to help in the fight to end human trafficking in Iowa through trainings and outreach. In 2020, the Iowa Attorney General’s office identified 558 sex trafficking victims and 158 labor trafficking victims. It’s time we stand-up against human trafficking.

By joining businesses are committing to Learn Something about human trafficking and Do Something to educate their community on this horrific crime. Since our launch on January 13, 2022 we’ve had over 450 businesses become a member of IBAT and we would love for YOU to as well.

The Iowa Secretary of State also administers an address confidentiality program, Safe at Home (SAH). Which provides a legal substitute address, mail-forwarding and confidential voter registration/absentee voting to survivors of trafficking, domestic violence, and other violent crimes.
