We need to be aggressive and secure proper funding for these victims and provide modern-day slavery training for our law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal levels.
The National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) sent a letter "November 2, 2012" to congressional leaders urging them to pass the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) by the end of the year in order to adequately fund programs to combat human trafficking and modern-day slavery.

      Freedom Center movie links 19th century bondage to contemporary scourges
      The 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation will be Jan. 1, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wanted to tie President Abraham Lincoln’s executive order freeing slaves to the State Department’s efforts worldwide to raise awareness of contemporary slavery.
      The Department of State’s first move in linking that to historic American slavery was to contact Cincinnati’s National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
      “The Freedom Center is the definitive place in the United States to think about slavery, and it’s the one authoritative voice of slavery old and new,” said Luis C. de Baca, Clinton’s senior adviser and director of the State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons.
      The film was supposed to premiere Oct. 30 in Washington, a screening postponed until Nov. 27 because of Hurricane Sandy.

      Exploring slavery through the ages

      DOWNTOWN - The 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation will be Jan. 1, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wanted to tie President Abraham Lincoln's executive order freeing slaves to the State Department's efforts worldwide to raise awareness of contemporary slavery. Today, an estimated 27 million people are ensnared in forced labor, sex trafficking and involuntary domestic servitude.
