We need your immediate help to bring a major, three-year anti-trafficking action to a successful close – today!
Please call, text, tweet, Facebook or e-mail your representative in the U.S. House.
Ask them to vote NO on any proposed floor amendments to bill S.47 — the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)– that don’t include the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA). Then also ask that they vote YES on the Senate-passed version of S. 47, which also includes renewal of Trafficking Victims Protection Act.
It’s a simple message. The Senate has combined the anti-trafficking act and the violence against women act. We need the House to keep the combination intact, and pass the combined bill.
The Trafficking Victims Protection Act has strong bi-partisan support. It is the U.S. government’s main framework for combating human trafficking at home and abroad. Congress allowed the act to expire at the end of the last session — the first time that has happened since the law was initially passed in 2000.
Your representative must hear from you. Find your representative simply by typing your zip code into the top right corner of the House of Representatives webpage.
Remember the message: Vote NO on any substitute amendments to VAWA (S.47) that don’t include the anti-trafficking legislation. Vote YES on the Senate-passed version of VAWA (S.47), which includes the TVPA.
With quick action on February 12th, you took action to help the TVPA pass the Senate. Now let’s get the job done! Get this vital legislation passed by the House and onto the President’s desk for signing.
