Urge your senators to support the End Trafficking Initiative Act of 2015.
On February 24, Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Bob Menendez (D-NJ) introduced the End Modern Slavery Initiative Act of 2015.
Over 27 million people are trapped in the multi-billion dollar modern slave trade industry, which exists in more than 165 countries, including the U.S., and thrives most where enforcement is weak, whether due to indifference, corruption or lack of resources.
The End Modern Slavery Initiative Act of 2015 would create a focused, sustained effort in concert with the private sector and foreign governments to eliminate sexual and labor human slavery worldwide. This model is designed to leverage limited foreign aid dollars and galvanize tremendous support and investment from the public sector, philanthropic organizations and the private sector to focus resources responsibly where this crime is most prevalent. This effort will complement other legislation focused on improving enforcement within the United States.
