President Trump Gives $35 Million to Human Trafficking Victims
DULUTH, Ga. – The Faith & Freedom Coalition applauds the Trump administration for granting $35 million in aid to support victims of human trafficking. Spread out across 73 organizations in 33 states, the grants will provide safe housing and other services such as counseling and occupational training to survivors.
“It is unconscionable that in a country founded on the promise of liberty, modern-day slavery continues to persist,” said Timothy Head, executive director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition. “We applaud the Trump administration for these grants, as well as for its ongoing work to end human trafficking in America. We pray that these grants will help survivors carve out a path towards hope, healing and restoration.”
At the event announcing the grant awards, presidential adviser Ivanka Trump described human trafficking as “the gravest of human rights violations.” Attorney General Bill Barr echoed her words, saying human trafficking is “an evil scourge” and pledging that the Justice Department would do all in its power to “investigate, prosecute and punish traffickers.”
Faith & Freedom Coalition, a strong advocate in the fight against human trafficking, commends President Trump for this step and applauds his continued commitment to ending this crime in the United States.
