CALLS NEEDED: Protect Child Victims of Sex Trafficking

Mar 29th, 2022

Ask the Senate to support HB833

The Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee is scheduled to vote soon on legislation that would provide safe harbor to child victims of sex trafficking. 

HB833 - Criminal Law - Victims of Child Sex Trafficking - Safe Harbor and Service Response seeks to provide a safe harbor for child victims of sex trafficking and prevent their further victimization by redirecting them out of the criminal justice system and connecting them to services. This bill would prevent prosecution for specified crimes committed as a result of trafficking, including prostitution and other related offenses and is supported by a wide range of advocates, including survivors, survivor advocates, crime victim rights attorneys, prosecutors, and other law enforcement.

Please ask members of the Judicial Proceedings Committee to
vote favorably on HB833
to protect child victims of sex trafficking
