SUPPORT ADVOCACY & LEGISLATION

YOUR VOICE MAKES A DIFFERENCE

History making legislation is underway to protect innocent children from sex trafficking and abuse.

The Foundation United advocates for legislation that will protect the most vulnerable... our children. One piece of legislation in the U.S. Congress is entitled the Human Trafficking and Exploitation Prevention Training Act of 2021. The Senate version of S. 2136 is sponsored by Senator Murkowski (R) and Senator Smith (D). The House version of this bill is sponsored by Representative Buchanan (R) and Representative Wasserman-Schultz (D), (H.R.4989)

Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Representative Karen Bass (D-CA) introduced the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act of 2021 (H.R. 5150)­­­ (TVPA) on Capitol Hill, which now includes a mandate on sex trafficking prevention education for students K-12 for the first time. This provides funding for schools to institute our train-the-trainer model and curriculum to save young lives! Click here to download a quick fact-sheet about the TVPA.
