Dear [your member of Congress],
As an American, I am morally opposed to slavery. But today, an estimated 35.8 million people are enslaved around the world, even within our own borders. It’s possible to confront this crime effectively, and the U.S. must step up our leadership in doing so.
Specifically, I ask that Congress:
- Designate 5 to 15 focus countries in which to test and implement robust, effective initiatives to free children, men and women from forced labor and sex trafficking, and to create deterrence by putting perpetrators behind bars;
- Scale up existing successful anti-slavery initiatives;
- Make slavery eradication a diplomatic priority in every country where it exists.
I know that Members of Congress from across the political spectrum share my conviction that we must work together to end slavery once and for all—both within our borders and around the world.
Please lend your support to sharpen America’s tools to combat this intolerable crime.
