Human Trafficking Bills No. 150076 & 150075 Have Lapsed

We are pleased to announce that City Council Bills No. 150076 & 150075 have lapsed.

We wrote about these bills in 2015. These failed bills are a part of a growing trend of initiatives that encourage individuals to identify and report people in the sex trade to law enforcement. We remain committed to developing legislation that addresses the direct and systemic violence faced by people in the sex trade and supports their individual and collective empowerment.

We would like to thank those who supported us in this effort including SWOP-USA, RSSC-PHL, Incarnation Institute for Sex and Faith and many more supporters committed to listening to and empowering our community.
