Urge Your Senators to Pass FOSTA-SESTA


It's time to stop selling human beings online. FOSTA-SESTA is a bipartisan bill which provides a pathway to justice for survivors of trafficking. Thanks to your support, the bill has passed the House and now will be headed to the Senate Floor for a vote.

To help take this effort over the finish line, we are asking you to call/Tweet/Facebook your Senators to confirm they will vote YES when FOSTA-SESTA comes to the Senate Floor. Read on to take action and learn more about this historic bipartisan movement to end trafficking and exploitation online.

What does FOSTA-SESTA do?

  • Allows victims of sex trafficking to seek justice against websites that knowingly facilitated the crimes against them.

  • Eliminates special federal liability loopholes for websites that assist in the violation of federal sex trafficking laws.
  • Enables state law enforcement officials to take action against individuals or businesses that violate federal sex trafficking laws.




We need a barrage of positive calls to Senate members. Please call 202-225-3121 and you will be transferred to your Senator’s office.

Sample script for call: "My name is ___ and I live in _____ (State). I am calling to thank Senator ______ for supporting the FOSTA-SESTA package and I am calling to confirm that she/he will vote YES so that survivors and states finally will have the legal tools to hold websites accountable for knowingly facilitating human trafficking. Thank you."
