What is the Frederick Douglass bill?
H.R.6552, or the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act of 2022, is comprehensive legislation which enhances the efforts of survivor leaders, government, business, non-profits, and faith organizations to prevent human trafficking, identify and support victims, and ensure offenders and those who facilitate trafficking are held accountable. Download our one-page briefing document about the bill (PDF, 61kb). The bill also includes provisions specifically aimed at preventing human trafficking in federal contract supply chains. Hope for Justice recognizes the importance of this bill in the fight against human trafficking. To support this bill, we urge you to download our letter template and write your representative.
Why does it matter?
There are more people living in slavery today than at ANY other time in history. Every country in the world is affected by this crime, and in the United States there are an estimated 403,000 victims of human trafficking, and that number only continues to grow. A heartbreaking truth.
This is why it is so important for you to reach out to your representative so that we can get more people behind this bill. Your voice does matter!
