Shared Hope is taking the fight against online sex trafficking to the U.S. Congress.
S.B.1693, the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act of 2017, has just been introduced in the Senate, aligning with the effort started by H.B.1865, the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act, in the House. We are behind these bills 100% — and need your support to continue our advocacy efforts:
- Launching our Stop the InJuSTice: Online campaign … alerting and engaging social media in the fight against sex trafficking
- Actively engaging with federal legislators and meeting with members of Congress
- Mobilizing friends like you in support of these bills that will prosecute online offenders and protect the innocent
- And more!
These bills are critical to restoring the promise of justice for victims and holding offending websites culpable for their crimes.
As sex trafficking explodes online, accountability for those who facilitate this exploitation (like Backpage) is an essential tool in the international fight against sex trafficking.
Please help Shared Hope protect our children and families from online predators and continue all of our work around the world, bringing justice and restoring shattered lives.
