Trafficking Victims Protection Act

Urge Congress to renew crucial protections for victims of human trafficking

The Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) expired in September 2017. Call Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at (202) 224-2541 and send your U.S. Senators a message urging them to pass this vital bill. 

For 15 years, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act has set policy and provided resources to help prevent victimization, support survivors and hold criminals accountable. But in September of 2017 - more than a year ago - that law expired. The Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, modernizes the original law in a number of ways including by increasing resources for supporting survivors of human trafficking as they work to rebuild their lives. Other provisions of this vital framework include

  • a national report on goods made by child and slave labor

  • requirements and standards for training of certain front-line workers in industries such as certain transportation

  • modernized standards to prevent trafficking of domestic workers brought to the United States by employers with certain diplomatic protections

It is long past time for Congress to pass this bipartisan bill so we can strengthen supports for survivors, effectively prosecute human traffickers and keep vulnerable people safe.
