Support Funding for Victims of Human Trafficking Today!
Today, we are at a crucial moment in the fight against human trafficking: an important House subcommittee is about to decide whether or not to provide $15 million for services for survivors of human trafficking.
Please, write to Committee Chairman Mollohan and Ranking Member Wolf to urge them to fund services for victims of human trafficking now >
The upwards of 17,500 people who are trafficked into the United States, along with the tens of thousands of Americans trafficked internally each year, are in desperate need of services like medical care, legal assistance, and shelter in order to recover from horrific abuses and rebuild their lives.
Without adequate funds these services will be inaccessible for many trafficking survivors. For most survivors, these services are the key to a new life after a traumatizing experience with slavery.
The relevant Senate subcommittee has already agreed to fund trafficking victims' services at $15 million. Now, we are asking the House to provide the highest possible funding level to provide trafficking survivors the resources they desperately need.
Please, write to Reps. Mollohan and Wolf and urge them to support this funding today. By doing so, you can help trafficking victims get the resources they need to build a better, freer life.
