Sex traffickers are enslaving women and children.
Illegal immigrants and the most vulnerable in our society are entrapped in indentured servitude.
The Florida Faith and Freedom Coalition supports stronger laws against human trafficking, including programs such as the interdiction training undertaken by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and the transportation company Uber. Ahead of Super Bowl LIV in Miami next year, this initiative will provide anti-trafficking training for Uber’s more than 100,000 Florida drivers.
Tough laws and public-private partners are desperately needed because the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that nearly 200,000 unique incidents of sexual exploitation of minors happen annually in the U.S. America, at large, remains unaware of the problem.
As people of faith come together to protect life and innocence, the Faith & Freedom Coalition continues to support efforts to combat trafficking. We worked for passage of the “End Modern Slavery Initiative Act” as a part of the National Defense Authorization Act which allocates federal funds for a non-profit foundation dedicated to cutting human trafficking. We also supported the “The Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act” (SESTA) to amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to ensure that websites that facilitate sex trafficking can be held liable and victims can get justice.
