Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, on National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) introduced legislation to combat human trafficking. She issued the following statement:

“One of our most urgent priorities should be disrupting the child welfare to trafficking pipeline and finding better and more effective ways to meet the critical needs of this vulnerable population,” Rep. Bass, Co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Foster Youth, said. “For far too long victims of human trafficking were left in the shadows. I urge my colleagues to support this important piece of legislation and help bring an end to this insidious practice.”
