Take action against modern day slavery with a phone call today!

I got this email today. Join me in taking action in standing against modern day slavery.


The House of Representatives has scheduled critical votes on the Trafficking Victims Protection Act today and tomorrow. Your member of Congress needs to hear from you today. We’ve been working with you for a year and a half to get this legislation reauthorized and we are finally near the finish line.

Please call the Capitol Switchboard right now at 202-224-3121 and ask for your Representative. When you are connected, here is a sample script:

“My name is Kathy and I believe in a world without slavery. I am your constituent and I am calling to ask you to support S. 47 – the Senate-passed Violence Against Women Act, which includes the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. Please vote NO today on the Substitute Amendment to S. 47, which is narrower and does not include the vital anti-human trafficking legislation. Then vote YES tomorrow on the final passage of S. 47. Thank you.”

You know the facts: the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act is the cornerstone of American anti-trafficking policy. It sets vital funding benchmarks and increases our ability to protect victims, assist survivors, and prosecute traffickers.

Please make sure your Congressperson knows you support the final passage of S. 47.

We can do this today. Please call 202-224-3121 and follow up with an email now.

PS: You can let your friends on Facebook and followers on Twitter know you support the final passage of the S. 47. Thank you.
