Help End Human Trafficking by U.S. Contractors

    1. Sponsored by

      Walk Free

U.S. contractors have made billions from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But now, several are being investigated for human trafficking. 



More than 250,000 people who were promised good jobs with decent pay ended up in conditions of modern slavery. 

Their passports were taken away, they were held in tents and shipping containers, and many were subject to brutal physical abuse.



Our tax dollars were never meant to fund human trafficking. 



Tell the US Senate to IMMEDIATELY pass the bipartisan End Trafficking in Government Contracting Act and stop taxpayer funded modern slavery.

      Petitioning The President of the United States

      Reauthorize Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA)

      This petition will be delivered to:

      The President of the United States

      The U.S. House of Representatives

      The U.S. Senate

      Greetings,

      I just signed the following petition addressed to: United States Congress.

      ----------------

      Reauthorize the U.S. Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA)

      I’m taking a stand to end slavery: modern-day labor, sex trafficking and child abuse…

      Stephanie Brown, Richard’s 17-year old granddaughter, died of a fatal drug-overdose on March 16, 2007, after being hired at a local downriver strip-club in Lincoln Park, Michigan, where two patrons (a volunteer basketball coach and an ordained minister) including a dancer at the club, sex-trafficked Stephanie to a local motel down the street and where she died that morning.

      Together the State of Michigan and Stephanie’s family successfully prosecuted the drug-dealing, junior high school volunteer coach and later settled out-of-court with the strip-club for employing an underage person for sex-work. However, Richard continues to pursue other legal rights, causes and criminal investigations in human and labor trafficking cases regarding Stephanie’s death at the local, state and federal levels including international awareness and education.

      ----------------

      Sincerely,

      [Your name]
