From the Polaris Project (http://www.polarisproject.org/):
Now that the holidays are over, we wanted to remind you to RSVP for the 2011 Pennsylvania Lobby Day to End Human Trafficking! Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world, and it happens right here in Pennsylvania to children, adults, U.S. citizens and foreign nationals. Not only do victims experience a complete loss of freedom, but they also go through horrible physical and psychological abuse. This is your chance to do something about it!
Tuesday, January 25 is the Pennsylvania Lobby Day to End Human Trafficking. Join human trafficking advocates from around the state and RSVP today at http://actioncenter.polarisproject.org/component/content/article/34-learn/1185-palobbyday1-25-2011! On lobby day you will have an opportunity to advocate for legislation to clamp down on this horrific crime. Never participated in a lobby day before? No need to worry! You don’t need to be an expert on human trafficking or have any lobbying experience to take part. We will have experts on site to brief you on human trafficking, train you how to lobby your legislators, and answer any questions you may have. All you need to do is RSVP and we will help you with the rest!
