Page 4 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Mayor signs “Zero Tolerance” Executive Order for human trafficking in city contracts and purchasing I n the past year, Mayor Carlo DeMaria has taken a proactive approach to work with state and national offi cials in combating human traffi cking. That priority by his administration has resulted in Everett winning a coveted fellowship sponsored by the City of Houston and a foundation set up there to combat human traffi cking. Everett is only one of 20 cities nationwide that won the fi rst round of the program – called the Ten-Ten Municipal Fellowship – and the only city in the northeast. “My administration is working to raise public awareness about human traffi cking, which knows no borders and happens in communities across the state and the nation,” said Mayor DeMaria. “I’m announcing that I have signed an Executive Order instituting a zero tolerance policy for human traffi cking in the City of Everett. I am also proud that, since November of last year, the City of Everett has been one of 20 cities in the country to participate in the Human Traffi cking Response Ten/ We accept: MasterCard *Visa * & Discover $ 3.45 GALLON dine drink gather enjoy THE NORTH SHORE'S HOTTEST NIGHTCLUB!

This Executive Order is now part of the city’s standard contract language. The purpose of this Executive Order is as follows: • Raise awareness about human traffi cking and what corporate citizens can do to assist in the fi ght against human traffi cking. • Encourage contractors to follow employee recruitment and labor practices that do not violate human traffi cking laws. • Urge contractors to engage subcontractors with employee recruitment and labor practices that do not violate human traffi cking laws. • Educate the public that human traffi cking is a violation of state and federal law. • Affi rm that the City of Everett will not conduct business with entities that have knowledge of or further human traffi cking. • Declare the City of Everett will use its best eff orts to conduct business with enterprises that take steps to safeguard against human traffi cking. In its role as a market participant, the City of Everett seeks to assure the integrity of the procurement process is not undermined by substandard labor practices or purchase of services provided or goods made under exploitative or unsustainable conditions.
