After meeting with Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren in January, Mitty Advocacy students are working on an initiative with Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren to combat Human Trafficking in California. Our initiative is to encourage restaurant and hotel franchises to post a placard publicly in their businesses to alert employees and patrons about the stringency of California law on the issue of Trafficking.
The goal of this initiative is to expand this effort to business associations across the country to increase public awareness and enforcement of this damaging issue that impairs the well-being of many victims across the U.S. For more information on Human Trafficking, please visit the national agency working to combat Human Trafficking, The Polaris Project. To keep up with Congresswoman Lofgren’s legislation on this issue – visit her website. You can also follow her on Facebook.
What can I do to help? Simply take our Human Trafficking placard, download it, and forward it to local businesses, or the next big corporate conference and encourage companies to post publicly and take a proactive and leadership position on this issue. Developing public awareness around this issue is the first step to lead to increased enforcement.
Thank you Congresswoman Lofgren, local business leaders, and community leaders for an active and solution oriented position on this issue.
