Child Protection Compact Act
"Abolitionists around the country are advocating for the passage of the Child Protection Compact Act — critical legislation designed to help protect children in targeted countries from slavery and sex trafficking. The legislation was extremely close to passing but, in early October, Congress adjourned for elections without completing the process to pass the bill. There is only one opportunity left to pass this life-saving legislation into law: On November 15, Congress reconvenes for a “lame duck” session, giving us a final, unexpected chance to pass the CPCA.
We need your help to pass this urgent legislation! There will be many issues competing for Senators’ attention when they return — so they need to hear from constituents who care about ending child trafficking if they are going to make the CPCA a priority."
We are called on to protect the helpless. Who are more helpless than children who cannot protect themselves and may not even realize they need protection. We have to help!
