Call your Representative today and urge that they vote "yes" on H.R. 1865, Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017 also known as the FOSTA-SESTA legislation.
Congresswoman Ann Wagner's (R-MO) bill, H.1865, Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) is being brought to the House floor tomorrow. The bill, with an amendment from Congresswoman Mimi Walters (R-CA) that includes victim-centered provisions from S. 1693, the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA), sponsored by Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), will help give those who've been trafficked online through sites like Backpage a pathway to justice. This bipartisan package will clarify that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) does not prevent states and victims of sex trafficking from pursuing justice against the sites that knowingly facilitate trafficking.
We're very close to passing historic legislation that will help those who are trafficked online. And we need your support to get it done. Call your rep today!
