FAITH IN ACTION

Faith & Freedom Encourages U.S. House to Pass The “Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act”

Washington, DC – Today, the Faith & Freedom mobilized its over 1.7 million members across the nation to call (202) 224-3121 and encourage members of the U.S. House of Representatives to vote YES on the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act to shine a light on the marketplaces that contribute to the growing epidemic of sex trafficking in the United States and protect our most vulnerable citizens who are caught up in the online sex trade.

Human trafficking is the fastest-growing organized crime activity in the United States, making around $32 billion a year for criminals while destroying the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Currently, there are at least 105,000 children in America that are victims of human trafficking. In 2014, 70% of child sex trafficking victims were sold online.

Tomorrow, the House will vote on the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017, which gives states and victims the power to sue websites that facilitate human trafficking and provides law enforcement with the necessary tools to fight these predators who buy and sell children for sex. 

Faith & Freedom has been working alongside Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO) and Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) on legislation to empower law enforcement to effectively combat online sex trafficking hubs that profit from and provide safe haven for modern day slave traders.
