Pass the Strengthening the Child Welfare Response to Human Trafficking Act


Child protection agencies are often the first organizations to come in contact with children who've been victims of sex and labor trafficking. The Strengthening the Child Welfare Response to Human Trafficking Act will make sure agencies are better prepared to recognize and help rescue children from the brutal crime of modern-day slavery.

Safe Horizon supports this Act because it would help child protection agencies and advocates to identify child trafficking victims; provide guidelines on the best ways to provide child victims with services; and most important, would make sure these vulnerable children don't fall through the cracks - by improving data collections and agencies' efforts to prevent child trafficking.

This critical legislation deserves support - and we need to make sure Congress gets it passed so children have the chance to find and receive help, healing, and better futures.
