2018 Advocate Marijana Savić from the Belgrade-based NGO Atina was recognized as a TIP (Trafficking in Persons) Report Hero by the US Department of State in a ceremony in Washington, DC. Cindy Dyer, the US ambassador-at-large for the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, said that Marijana Savić was among the 10 individuals chosen for this year’s award “ in recognition of her acclaimed antitrafficking work in Serbia, relentless push for sustainable policy solutions, insistence on the provision of victim-centered approaches, prioritization of vulnerable survivors, and innovative work promoting long-term economic integration for survivors to prevent revictimization.” Since 2004, the department has recognized more than 170 TIP Report Heroes from around the world for their significant contributions to the anti-trafficking movement.
