Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act Endorsement
Rricha Mathur (Former Staff)Child Abuse & Neglect
H.R 4980, the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act includes critical provisions aimed at improving outcomes for children and youth who are at-risk of being sexually trafficked, prioritizes “normalcy” for children in the foster care system, provides incentives to states for increasing adoptions and guardianships, and strengthens supports for children in foster and adoptive families. This letter urges House leadership to bring this bill to the floor and ensure its swift passage so that vulnerable youth and children can benefit from these important reforms. The letter was also sent to the Senate leadership.
