Just last week, the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) was introduced in the House of Representatives. This bi-partisan bill renews and strengthens the legislation that established U.S. programs to fight slavery at home and abroad. Many of you have joined us in our effort to pass the TVPRA by calling on your Senators to cosponsor the Senate version of the bill, which was introduced in June. Now we have an opportunity to urge the House to do the same -- and we need your help.
Take one minute NOW to urge your Representative to co-sponsor the TVPRA with our easy online petition. You can also learn more about the House and Senate versions of the TVPRA on our website.
Current legislation governing U.S. anti-trafficking programs expires in a few short weeks. Let's remind Congress that they have an opportunity to impact the lives of children, women, and men living in slavery today.
