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.
