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.

Letter to
Senator Harry Reid
Representative John Boehner
President of the United States
Dear President Obama, Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Reid,

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 US efforts to combat human trafficking in the United States and around the world, needs to be extended this year.

Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Reid, please support federal funding for anti-trafficking initiatives at their currently authorized levels and ensure the renewal this year of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act.

Mr. President, we ask that you 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.

Regards,
