Not For Sale Georgia Needs our Help

NFS Georgia needs the Emergent Cohort's help. The Senate has just introduced a bill to reauthorize the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA). NFS is organizing a national call-in campaign for June 25 & 26 to get cosponsors for the bill, S.3061. Join others in making a call to support the TVPRA.

The TVPA, which first became law in 2000, represents the first major comprehensive U.S. effort to address the global scourge of human trafficking. The TVPA created new programs to protect and serve survivors in the U.S. and globally, to prevent trafficking, and it also created new criminal provisions. It needs reauthorizing this year.

Not For Sale Campaign has been working in a coalition for the past year to advocate for important changes to the TVPA. The Action Group to End Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery includes organizations working both in the United States and abroad. The organizations came together and agreed to support several important amendments that were included in the bill that passed the House of Representatives last December with overwhelming bipartisan support. These include initiatives to increase victim identification, provide survivors with much needed services and prosecute human traffickers.

It's time for the Senate to pass this bill.

Modern-day slavery has a devastating effect on each victim who suffers severe physical and emotional abuse, threats against their families and even death. But the impact of modern-day slavery goes beyond individual victims; it undermines the health, safety and security of all nations it touches. It's important for our Senators to know that this is an important issue for their constituents.

· Hi, I am [NAME] calling from [STATE] and I want to urge Senator [NAME] to cosponsor S. 3061, the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.
· Vulnerable victims are waiting for increased protections already included in house passed version of the TVPRA, HR 3887 and the Senate needs to introduce its version of the TVPRA as soon as possible.

Call Senator Johnny Isakson (202) 224-3643

Call Senator Saxby Chambliss (202) 224-3521

We appreciate your help and commitment to end modern day slavery in our lifetime!
