HB 141 Support the Human Trafficking Hotline Bill
Read what Georgia Women for a Change shared today in their latest release about the HB 141 Trafficking Hotline Bill:
Please contact your state representative before 10 am tomorrow morning and ask them to support HB 141 when it comes to the House Floor tomorrow, February 27, for a vote. (Click Here for House Representative Contact information)
Georgia is one of the leaders in the nation when it comes to the trafficking and exploitation of children. HB 141(Lindsey-54th) requires the posting of the National Human Trafficking Hotline number in adult entertainment venues, truck stops, bars, bus stations, airports, emergency rooms, interstate rest areas and other locations where people who are trafficked may be able to call for help or where people who witness something suspicious may call in a tip.
The number is toll-free, confidential and anonymous and operated by a national non-profit that is funded by the US Dept. of Health and Human Services.
The Message: “Please vote YES on HB 141 when it comes to the House Floor for a vote. Children who are exploited or those witnessing potential exploitation need an easy, convenient and fast way to get help or advice. Access to a human trafficking hotline number could save lives.”
