Tell Federal Officials We Need Tough Anti-Human Trafficking Rules

humanT_sandbags_300.jpg

Thousands of foreign nationals working for U.S. government contractors and subcontractors are victims of human traffickers. Many of these workers have been lied to in regards to where they’ll work and how much they’ll get paid. Often, after they arrive, they live in squalid conditions and have their travel documents taken away, making them prisoners.

It’s unconscionable.

If you agree, then please send a letter to the federal agency in charge of writing the new anti-trafficking regulations. Demand that contractors and subcontractors be held accountable so that the thousands of workers who provide food and other necessary services to our soldiers and reconstruction personnel aren’t trapped in the horrors of modern-day slavery.

Message

Dear [Decision Maker],

I'm writing to urge your office to write the strongest possible prohibitions against human trafficking, along with enforcement procedures that will hold contractors and subcontractors accountable.

I believe that it's imperative that in writing new anti-trafficking regulations, the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council follow the spirit and intent of Executive Order (EO) 13627, "Strengthening Protections Against Trafficking In Persons In Federal Contracts," and the National Defense Authorization Act, Public Law 112239, the "End Trafficking In Government Contracting Act" (ETGCA).




Please hold all contractors accountable so that the foreign workers who provide food and other necessary services to our soldiers and reconstruction force aren't trapped in the horrors of modern-day slavery.

Sincerely,
