2 Minute Advocacy Ask for this Week: Tell the Legislature to Protect Sexually Exploited Children

and yes – it really only takes 2 minutes!

 

The “Ask”:  Ask members of the Georgia House Judiciary Non-Civil Committee to request a committee hearing on the House version of the Safe Harbor legislation, House Bill 244 and House Resolution 223.

traffickingThe Why:  The “Safe Harbor Bill,” would develop a funding mechanism for services for sexually exploited/trafficked children by creating the Safe Harbor for Sexually Exploited Children Fund and the Safe Harbor for Sexually Exploited Children Fund Commission.  Such services could include family support, crisis intervention, counseling, and emergency housing.
Children who have been sold or rented for sex deserve all the help that we can get for them. A serious and productive conversation needs to be had about reliable funding to help these children.

The Message: “Dear Representative _______________, please request a committee hearing on the House version of the Safe Harbor legislation, House Bill 244 and House Resolution 223. Children who have been sold or rented for sex deserve all the help that we can get for them. Thank you for your service and for all you do for Georgia’s children.”
