Stop Enabling Sex Trafficking Act - US internet firms drop opposition and back bill
we ask that you send a letter or email, or make a phone call, to your elected representatives at the state and federal level requesting postive actions be taken to stop domestic violence and human trafficking. You will find 3 attachments here to help you out - one is a listing of all pending legislation for 2017-2018. The other is an article from The Guardian about Sen. Rob Portman's efforts to pass SESTA, the Stop Enabling Sex Trafficking Act, aimed at internet trafficking (S 1693 and H 1865). There had been backlash against this bill from internet firms but they have now dropped their opposition, making passage more likely. This is one bill you can focus on in your letters an calls, along with any others you choose to address. Third is a list of elected officials in the state of Ohio to contact.
