Human Trafficking Bill Passes Through PA Senate

Pennsylvania Senate Bill 60, a bill designed to impose harsher penalties for traffickers and raise revenues to fund programs for child victims of sex trafficking, passed the Senate unanimously. LAMPa had advocated for both House and Senate versions of the bill as introduced, and is working to address concerns raised by amendments just prior to Senate passage.

LAMPa is working with Women of the ELCA, being prepared to engage WELCA advocates in Pennsylvania to secure passage of meaningful legislation.
