Do you know who your state legislator is?
Using your location, you can find your legislator here.
If you’d like to raise awareness in your area, emailing or sending a letter to your legislator is a great step to take. You could even consider sending them a copy of In Our Backyard: Human Trafficking in America.
Just sending a letter or an email can bring awareness to the leaders in your area. If you have expertise in a certain applicable area, be sure to mention that in your letter. Below are some ideas of things you might say to your legislators.
- “Anti-human trafficking legislation matters to me, please consider sponsoring any anti human trafficking bills that may be proposed.”
- “I have ________ expertise and I would be happy to testify on bills.”
- “I work with a group of abolitionists and I would be happy to get the word out on bills via social media, emails, phone calls, word of mouth.”
