Ask Your Representative to Support H.R. 5575: Combat Child Sex Trafficking

      Washington, United States

The Trafficking Deterrence and Victims Support Act (TDVSA), which was introduced by U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) aims to address the significant issue of American children being trafficked for sex in the U.S. While existing legislation has provided tools and resources for children trafficked into the U.S. from other countries, American kids have traditionally been overlooked. The TDVSA would help fill that gap by providing much needed resources for victim services and law enforcement investigations.

The TDVSA passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on August 5, 2010. Now, it must also pass the House of Representatives. Please, take a moment to contact your Representative and ask him or her to support or co-sponsor H.R. 5575, the House version of the bill.
