Pass a Safe Harbor Law in Pennsylvania so sexually exploited minors are not prosecuted.

    1. Petition by

      PA Care and Act

Safe Harbor laws can increase funding for specialized services like long-term housing, mental health care, educational support, and job training to help these children recover. Thirty-nine states lack these basic Safe Harbor protections – including Pennsylvania.

      Too many children suffer in too many ways, by too many adults, who aren't prosecuted....or who are "excused".
