Human Trafficking is finally getting the attention it deserves - in Congress.
Many women are so desperate to leave their countries, they are willing to use marriage brokers in the hopesof "marryingup" into a better life - and wind up caught in a ring ofprostitution, slave trade and trafficking.
Right now, H.R. 3657, The International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA), is being debated in Congress.
The bill helps protect women from abusive men and unscruplous international marriage brokers - and we can help ensure the bill becomes a law.
Click here to sign the petition to the Congressperson in your state and urge them to support this bill today.
Then, don't forget to watch the Lifetime movie event, HUMAN TRAFFICKING, airing Monday & Tuesday, October 24-25 at 9 PM ET/PT.
Know other friends planning to watch the movie too? Then sign up to host a viewing circle and watch the movie together.

It's not too late to sign up now to host a home screening of Lifetime's 2-part mini-serieson October 24

HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Oct. 24-25, 9 PM ET/PT
