Join the National Call-in Day to Pass the TVPRA on Sep 8!

I received the following invitation from the International Justice Mission (IJM) last week and I extend the same invitation to everyone. This is something simple you can do to help pass the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization act. Just watch the video below to see how easy it is to call in. A few minutes of your time will go a long way to help pass vital anti-trafficking legislation. You can find your legislators phone number at

From IJM:
Abolitionists around the country are advocating for the passage of theTrafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act – bi-partisan legislation to sustain life-saving programs that fight human trafficking at home and abroad.
This legislation must be reauthorized every few years, and is set to expire this year on September 30. On September 8, join IJM and abolitionists around the country for the National Call-In Day to Pass the TVPRA!
There are many issues competing for your Senators' attention right now, so they need to hear from constituents who care about ending modern-day slavery to make the TVPRA a priority. Last year, your calls in support of the Child Protection Compact Act helped generate 13 new co-sponsors for that bill in the House and Senate. Let's work together to generate 3,000 calls – from all 50 states.

In addition to calling your Senators, you can send them an email using this form letter created by IJM. You can edit the letter, add your address and the email will automatically be sent to your Senators. It's another simple way to have your voice heard. SEND YOUR EMAIL.
