JVTA letter 3-13 (2)We send this letter to Senate leadership urging them to break the impasse that has stalled the critical Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015 and pass Amendment #271 to fix the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s definition of homelessness to include homeless children and youth who are living temporarily in motels or with others because they have nowhere else to go.
