Dec. 5 Capitol Advocacy Day for Child Sex Trafficking Victims

December 5, 2017

On Dec. 5,  join LAMPa and advocates from across the Commonwealth in the fight to protect child victims of sex trafficking.  Lutherans in Pennsylvania have been writing and visiting lawmakers in support of legislation that would redirect children victimized by traffickers away from the criminal justice system and into appropriate services.  SB554 passed the Senate unanimously earlier this year, but it has been sitting without action in the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Ron Marsico.

Meet us for a press conference at 10:30 a.m. in the main rotunda of the Capitol, followed by visits with lawmakers.  Click here for more information and to register.

The day’s events are being organized by the Pennsylvania Anti-Human-Trafficking Advocacy Work Group, an initiative of Pennsylvania’s community-based anti-trafficking coalitions, task forces and networks and state and national organizational partners. Email LAMPa if you plan to go, and we will send you more details as they become available so that we can connect.
