The SOAR Act

Thrilled to announce that the SOAR Act was approved in the House of Representatives this week!

What does the SOAR Act do?

It creates training programs for nurses, doctors, & first responders to help them recognize the signs of human trafficking in patients. A reported 88% of sex trafficking survivors had contact with a health care provider while being trafficked. In many cases it may be the only time that they are separated from their trafficker. Training health care providers to contact law enforcement after identifying a human trafficking victim creates opportunities for intervention.

We’re not done yet! The Senate must pass SOAR before it can be signed into law.

Email your senators now and urge them to pass the SOAR Act.
