Tell the President & Congress to Protect Funding & Extend Critical Anti-Trafficking Legislation

    1. Petition by

      ATEST

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.

      With the enormous profits from human trafficking no child is safe. Kidnapping for organ harvesting is also a terrible side business to this tragic crime. I grew up in Vegas and have helped women escape bondage. I cannot share the details even though it was some years ago. Thank you for using your popularity and status to champion this cause. I believe many people want to help but don't know how or where to begin. You have provided a safe and trusted venue for us.

      Because no child, girl or boy should ever have to go through such an immoral act as human trafficking.
