Tell Congress to Extend Anti- Human Trafficking Legislation
As my gentle readers know already, after being homeless I am very committed to anti-trafficking laws to protect all people. Here is an action for readers in the United States from change.org:
"This year, the Administration and Congress have the opportunity to make historic bipartisan progress towards ending slavery at home and abroad. The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, the cornerstone of U.S. efforts to combat human trafficking in the United States and around the world, needs to be extended this year and current funding levels need to be protected.
Please ask Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Reid to support federal funding for anti-trafficking initiatives at their currently authorized levels and ensure the renewal this year of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, and President Obama to make the effort to combat human trafficking and modern day slavery a priority, including working hard to renew the Trafficking Victims Protection Act this year."
We need to hold the Republicans in Congress, since they always talk about being anti-crime, to their stated values. Fighting crime against children and adults needs to be funded.
Please sign the change.org petition!
