Advocating for Human Trafficking Victims
This week at the Capitol anti-trafficking organizations, service providers, law enforcement officials, Governor Hickenlooper, Attorney General Coffman, fellow legislators and supporters gathered to advocate for statewide awareness of human trafficking, and celebrate the work being done to advance the cause. I had the privilege of addressing the gathering to state unequivocally that: NO CHILD SHOULD BE A SLAVE.
Human Trafficking Advocacy Day was sponsored by the Human Trafficking Task Force of Southern Colorado. I spoke as the prime sponsor of HB16-1224, which creates an avenue for minors who are victims of human trafficking to get at the same services that abused and neglected children receive. The bill will be heard March 8, in House Public Health Care & Human Services committee.
