With the creation of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) in 2000, the United States positioned itself as a leader in the global fight against human trafficking. This groundbreaking legislation made human trafficking a federal crime, created agencies and task forces to address both its domestic and international elements, defined the strict penalties traffickers face, established the State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, and initiated a host of measures to prevent trafficking, protect victims, and prosecute traffickers. Since its original passage, the bill has been reauthorized three times, each time reaffirming our nation’s commitment to eliminating modern slavery and strengthening our ability to fight it.
This year, the TVPA is once again up for reauthorization. Passing this bill is crucial to sustaining the essential programs the bill provides, from protecting victims to bringing traffickers to justice.
Please urge your Senators to support a strong TVPRA.
