Tell Congress to Fund Crucial Programs to End Human Trafficking

Last year, over 5000 of you wrote to Congress asking them to fund crucial services for human trafficking survivors, and they listened -- to the tune of $12.5 million. Now, we need your help again to secure critical funding for programs to help victims of human trafficking, get traffickers off the streets, and prevent more and more men, women, and children around the world from becoming modern-day slaves. You can send a letter to the House State, Foreign Operations, Subcommittee and the House Labor, Health and Human Services, Education Subcommittee, and tell them ending modern-day slavery is a priority!

In December of 2008, Congress authorized tens of millions of dollars to fund services for human trafficking victims and to get traffickers off the streets. However, none of this money can be used to help end human trafficking until Congress passes legislation to appropriate the needed funds.  The money Congress has authorized for human trafficking is part of a huge spending bill, which includes funding requests for many different programs and projects. With a limited budget and so many competing projects seeking funding, it is critical that you tell federal legislators about the urgent need for funds for human trafficking survivors.  You've made a difference in the lives of human trafficking victims once before. Please, do it again.
