The TVPA is necessary to protect individuals from being exploited and forced into slavery. There are an estimated 27 million slaves in the world today. The TVPRA would sustain and improve life-saving U.S. programs that combat slavery around the world and inside the United States.

The Department of State estimates that there are 27 million victims of human trafficking worldwide. The Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2011 seeks to enhance the identification, protection and assistance of trafficking victims, especially those who are children. This bill will increase criminal penalties against trafficking, evaluate if DHS is adequately screening children who may be victims of trafficking or persecution, and enhance victims’ access to the appropriate visas and foster care programs specific to their needs. Write your members of Congress and President Obama today expressing your concern for vulnerable migrants who are victims of trafficking. http://www.lirs.org/siteapps/advocacy/ActionItem.aspx?c=nhLPJ0PMKuG&b=5542963&aid=16238&printmode=1

Ask your senators to support the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act - the cornerstone of U.S. policies against slavery. This bill will allow the U.S. to remain the global leader in the fight against modern-day slavery by preventing vulnerability, protecting survivors, and prosecuting those who enslave men, women, and children. 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. The current TVPRA expires on September 30. Our acts make a difference! Mobilize your friends and family and ask your senators to support this legislation so that there is no gap in the fight to stop human trafficking. https://secure2.convio.net/wv/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=322

The Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act TVPRA (S.1301), as introduced by the Senate, makes needed improvements that will better assist human trafficking victims, prosecutors and law enforcement. Some of these important changes include: Increased support for countries with a significant prevalence of child trafficking to support policies and programs to protect survivors and prosecute traffickers; Strengthen rapid response for victim assistance in emergencies and humanitarian crises; Increase protections for trafficking victims, their family members, and victims of fraud in labor recruiting situations, and measures that ensure child trafficking victims can more easily seek restitution; Increased training for the Department of Labor and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to better combat trafficking in the United States. Covenant House supports TVPRA (S.1301) because it would sustain and improve U.S. programs that combat human trafficking and slavery around the world and within our borders.

The U.S. spends more money to combat the drug trade in a single month than it has spent in the past decade on both domestic and international human trafficking combined. We are fighting against human trafficking with pennies, and indeed we are not keeping pace with the criminal enterprises that use narcotics to continue trafficking more and more victims of modern-day slavery worldwide. "Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) 2012-2015" Will help U.S. to strengthen our law enforcement here at home and overseas including our government’s ability to assist victims of modern-day slavery and bring the perpetrators to justice. www.sob-csc.org & www.richard.a.sands.blogspot.com
