Pass the TVPRA today
Today is critical in the fight against modern slavery. The Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (the cornerstone of American anti-trafficking legislation) was added as an amendment to the Violence Against Women Act. VAWA passed the Senate with bipartisan support. Tomorrow, the House will vote on whether to adopt the Senate version of VAWA or their own version, which does not include the TVPRA. The TVPRA expired in September, 2011, and unless it is reauthorized, critical federal programs and the victims they support will be at risk.
Your help is essential to ensure that the House passes the strongest, most comprehensive version of VAWA that they can, including support for survivors of human trafficking.
