Sign on Letter to Amplify Trafficking Survivor Voices
Almost 14 years after the passage of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000, there is now a substantial group of identified survivors of human trafficking who are willing and capable of informing policy, shaping programmatic and funding decisions, providing training and technical assistance, and leading educational efforts. Human trafficking survivors are in the best position to speak to policies and programs that will have the greatest impact. H.R. 500 would establish a platform for survivors to review federal, state, and local government anti-trafficking policy and strengthen the U.S. government’s efforts to combat this crime.
