|Stand Up for Trafficking Victims in New York|
When Anneke was just 6 years old, her parents sold her into a child sex trafficking ring in Belgium. Human trafficking is unfortunately still common in the U.S. Many of these acts take place in hotels or motels, so traffickers can stay on the move and evade law enforcement. And many of these children — often runaways or homeless youth — don't realize they're being trafficked, because they think the abuse is part of a normal relationship.
Connecticut just passed a groundbreaking piece of legislation. The state is now requiring hotels and motels to post signage in a visible place spelling out what trafficking is. The notice must also contain information on how to get help by contacting the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) hotline.
A law like this could help children who are trafficked in New York. For today's Daily Action, please sign this petition asking New York to pass a law like Connecticut's to help human trafficking victims.
