As Latvia’s National Anti-TIP Coordinator, Stabiņa took the lead in developing and carrying out two large international anti-TIP projects: "Preventing human trafficking and sham marriages: A multidisciplinary solution" (HESTIA) and “Strengthening the Role of Municipalities in the Work against Trafficking in Human Beings in the Baltic Sea Region”. Through these projects, Latvia helped increase European Union scrutiny of trafficking by sham marriage and provided much-needed anti-trafficking training to local government officials.
Each year, the U.S. Department of State honors individuals around the world who have devoted their lives to the fight against human trafficking. These individuals are NGO workers, lawmakers, police officers, and concerned citizens who are committed to ending modern slavery. They are recognized for their tireless efforts to protect victims, punish offenders, and raise awareness of ongoing criminal practices in their countries and abroad.
