In February 2013, Congress passed the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, because of advocates like you. Now we need to make sure all that effort pays off for vulnerable children, victims, and survivors of human trafficking.
Right now, Congress is deciding where limited amounts of money should go. We’re not asking for new money. We just want to ensure that anti-trafficking programs are not cut.
U.S. government funding to fight international and domestic modern-day slavery accounts for only 0.003 percent of the federal budget. These programs support services for trafficking survivors, strengthen law enforcement and prosecution, and fund prevention programs both domestically and internationally.
This small amount of funding will ensure that the gains that have been made through the passage of the TVPRA are sustained.
Call your members of Congress today. Urge them to support strong funding to fight modern-day slavery.
