Voice your support for renewing the Trafficking Victims Protection Act

The House of Representatives has introduced the reauthorization of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA). The TVPA is the cornerstone of U.S. policies to fight modern-day slavery — and it is set to expire on September 30.

The first comprehensive federal law to address human trafficking, the TVPA focuses on both the domestic and international dimensions of this heinous crime. Because the methods of human traffickers are constantly evolving, the law must evolve with them. That is why the TVPA must be renewed every few years. Each time the bill is renewed, innovations and improvements are added.

As a proud member of the Alliance to End Slavery & Trafficking (ATEST), Vital Voices is advocating for the reauthorization of this critical tool. Encourage your Senators and Representatives to support this legislation so that there is no gap in the fight to stop human trafficking.
