Nonprofit head: Oklahoma delegation should work to end human trafficking
NewsOK Related Articles
Modern slavery is an international crime, like terrorism. It must be met with a coordinated federal effort to end this complex and cross-border problem. Throughout Oklahoma, churches, schools, book clubs and youth groups have raised funds and awareness to fight human trafficking. They understand that in the land of the free, slavery is an abomination. We should join them in a simple message to Oklahoma's congressional delegation: Support reauthorization of the TVPA by becoming a co-sponsor or by dropping objections that prevent the bill from moving to a vote.
It's never too late to take a stand for justice and freedom.
Bales is a co-founder of the nonprofit group Free the Slaves (www.freetheslaves.net), and the author of several books on slavery.
