>How $1Billion in Federal Funds could go away to further Domestic and International Initiatives to Combat Trafficking if the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act is not passed ASAP
A Virtual Congressional Briefing
March 10, 2022 | 3:00-3:45 PM EST
Please join us for this congressional briefing on H.R. 6552 with expert panelists including representatives from the offices of Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), Tanya Street, Survivor Leader & Presidential Award Recipient for Extraordinary Efforts to Combat Trafficking in Persons, and Bill Woolf former Acting Director at OVC for the Department of Justice & Safe House Project Policy Director.
The Frederick Douglass TVPRA is critical in reauthorizing a total of approximately $1 billion over five years to continue the prevention of trafficking, protection of victims and prosecution of traffickers in America and around the globe. Without its passage, current funding allocations could cease crippling efforts to address this heinous human rights crisis.
