#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.

Join us @FreedomCommons on Twitter to follow the release and add your voice by sending 3 tweets: one to both of your senators and your representative.
