Ask You Congressperson to Reauthorize TVPA!

Call Your Member of Congress Today!

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives introduced H.R. 2830, the reauthorization of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. This critical piece of legislation was first adopted by Congress in 2000 and has provided federal funds, training, and policy directives that protect victims, and help stop the perpetrators who commit these heinous crimes.
International Justice Mission, and other organizations like them, have acknowledged that the TVPA has helped them accomplish their work in foreign countries, as it gives incentive for the governments to implement their own laws against human trafficking.
Those laws will expire on September 30, 2011 if we don’t act swiftly.
Use your voice to make a difference! Contact your Representative and ask them to sign on as a co-sponsor of H.R. 2830, the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.
Send a letter to your representatives at IJM’s Advocacy Page.
