#TIPReport Tweet-In Day
June 28, 2018
Each year, the State Department releases a critical tool to shed light on the present state of human trafficking around the world. It’s called the Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report.
On Thursday, June 28, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released the 2018 TIP Report. Most notably, the Report reveals the truth regarding the progress global nations have made towards ending this crime, and it’s a great opportunity to raise the profile of this issue with our elected leaders.
Research by the Congressional Management Foundation (CMF) has shown that it takes as little as 10 tweets to bring an issue on the radar of Congressional staff. We will make sure Congressional offices know the importance of the TIP Report in the fight against slavery.

This is a unique opportunity to educate your community about this crime by writing a Letter to the Editor. (It's easy—everything you need is below!)
In July of 2016, you stood with us when IJM investigator and human rights lawyer, Willie Kimani, and two friends, Joseph Muiruri and Josephat Mwenda, were abducted and murdered. You helped spark a global outcry for #JusticeinKenya and an end of police abuse of power through this ongoing petition.
Do you have 5 minutes to spare? Yes? Great!
Congress is already facing pressure to impose signficant spending cuts on foreign aid in next year’s budget. Calling your Senators is one of the best ways to show them you care and ensure they use their power to protect funds that will end slavery for good.
