6 more members of Congress join the fight!

     Thank you Sanford Bishop, Jr., Eleanor Holmes Norton, and Jay Inselee in the US House of Representatives and Johnny Isakson, Any Klobuchar, and Kay Hagan in the US Senate for joining us in the fight to end slavery in America and around the world through the sponsorship of the TVPRA.  Although the temptation for politicians to do nothing (see the Iowa delegation for a disturbing inactivity despite the numbers of convictions in our state) weighs heavy on many politicians, as the bill now seems poised to be re-authorized within days, these six individuals are taking no chances.  They are lending their support to help get the bill to the President's desk, so that we can get back to the important work of identifying and helping those enslaved around us.

     It is still not too late.  If your Senators or Representatives still are not behind this bill, contact them and let them know that you are watching . . . and voting in the next election.
