Earlier this month the Senate finally passed the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) as part of the Violence Against Women Act (S. 47). Woo Hoo! This law is our countryâ€™s foundation for the fight against human trafficking locally and globally.
If you haven’t already heard, within less than 48 hours, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on S. 47.
I just called my Congressman. Will you join me? It took less than 2 minutes. (And if you’re nervous to talk to a person, no worries. You can even leave a voicemail.)
Go HERE to find your local representative and help over 250 million men, women, and children who are enslaved. Fight for justice by making one phone call in the next 24 hours.
Here is the script from IJM that I followed (I threw in a bunch of pauses and “umms,” so rest assured, you don’t have to be eloquent.):
Hi, I’m [NAME] and Iâ€™m calling to ask Representative [NAME] to vote YES on S. 47, the Senate-passed Violence Against Women Act because that bill includes the TVPRA. I urge [HIM/HER] to vote NO on the Substitute Amendment to S. 47 that will be considered first, as this bill does not include the TVPRA. Will you pass my message on to the Congress[man/woman]? Thank you!â€
We serve a God who sets captives free, comforts those who mourn, and bestows crowns of beauty instead of ashes. Let’s join with Him in setting others free today.
