ADVOCATE

“Human trafficking is a deplorable crime that is often hidden in our communities. We need to address this outrageous act with a sense of urgency. I will continue to support legislation to crack down on human trafficking and sex slavery in the United States and around the world.”

                                                                                                                                         – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow
