TVPRA PASSED!

TVPRA PASSES CONGRESS!!! Now On To The President’s Desk!

After more than two years of countless phone calls, frustrating roadblocks, and a lot of prayer, today your voices rang through the halls of Congress.  The Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act passed through the House of Representatives only a few weeks after the same provision passed through the Senate!  Now it goes to President Obama’s desk for his signature.

Words cannot properly express what you have meant to these efforts.  When your voices got loud, things started to change and the bill started to move. It may have taken longer than we wanted, but it’s over and the fight against modern day slavery is stronger for it.   Thank you for your perseverance and for never backing down.  You spoke truth to power and today, power gave you a big nod of respect!
