On January 30, 2015, the Cotton Campaign submitted comments to the U.S. Department of State in support of maintaining Uzbekistan’s Tier 3 ranking in the 2015 Trafficking in Persons Report, which will be released in June. Tier 3 is for governments that do not comply with minimum standards to combat human trafficking and fail to take adequate steps to address the problem, and it carries the possibility of sanctions. USFIA joined the comments, which are available on the Cotton Campaign website.
