"Almost 150 years after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, slavery still has a foothold in the United States. Until recently, human trafficking has remained in the shadows of society. Victims, often children and vulnerable women, are too afraid and dependent on traffickers to break their silence and seek help."
- Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle
- Assembly Appropriations Committee
Human trafficking is a form of modern day slavery that involves the use of force, fraud, and/or coercion for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. Since New Jersey is a culturally diverse state as well as a major transportation center, it is particularly vulnerable to human trafficking. More protective measures must be taken. Assemblywoman Huttle's bill A3352 increases the protection of victims of human trafficking and adds measures to prevent and treat the problem. It tells victims that they are not alone and tells perpetrators that the state of New Jersey is coming after you. Pass Bill A3352.
