A dedicated group of concerned citizens in the United States and Mexico working to end human trafficking, raise awareness and provide solutions.
WASHINGTON, DC, USA, November 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) will helm the media event on Capitol Hill comprised of members of Congress, dignitaries, groups and non-profits working to end human trafficking, survivors, law enforcement and the public coming together in the commitment to raise awareness, educate and provide resources to fight all forms of human trafficking.
"Human trafficking is an evil that impacts every dark corner of our society," Congressman Olson said. "It touches all demographics with its wickedness, enlisting society's most vulnerable into a life of modern-day slavery. As Co-Chair of the Victims' Rights Caucus in Congress with a history of advocating for those hurt by this scourge, it is an honor to continue this fight at the launch of the Alliance to End Human Trafficking. Greater awareness of this blight on our communities can only lead to improved outcomes for survivors and a demand for justice from the predators who destroy innocent lives."
