We have good news to share.
As a community of faith, Share the Journey and thousands of people across the nation lifted their voices in support of bills to protect trafficking victims and help refugee girls.
It made a huge difference!
Our collective actions—a year of sending emails and making phone calls – helped The Protecting Girls’ Access to Education in Vulnerable Settings Act pass in Congress before 2018 ended. It just became law a few weeks ago and will work to ensure refugee girls around the world have access to education—helping them heal from trauma and build hope for their future.
Together, we also secured the reauthorization of the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, solidifying a national commitment to assist victims in rebuilding their lives and to stop the scourge of human trafficking.
Advocacy works, and it matters.
As the first month of the new Congress ends, please take two minutes to send a message to your members of Congress, encouraging them to support migrants and refugees around the world in 2019.
Thank you for raising your voice and sharing the journey!
