I hope you will join me for a bipartisan Call to Action to push for new anti-human trafficking legislation this Wednesday, April 3rd from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Chester County Historical Society.
I have partnered with the Chester County Historical Society for this Call to Action as its building historically has been a center for abolitionist speeches and anti-slavery gatherings during the Civil War era.
Human trafficking, a $32 billion annual industry, is one of the fastest-growing criminal enterprises in the world today. Our region is not immune to this epidemic. In fact, it is happening right here in our own backyard, as Philadelphia has been identified as one of the major hubs of human trafficking in America.
