Survivors of human trafficking endure an unspeakable amount of pain and trauma. Often, they are arrested for crimes they were forced to commit by their traffickers. Even after they are able to leave their trafficking situations, these criminal records haunt them for the rest of their lives.
A new bill introduced in Congress would allow courts to erase survivors’ nonviolent federal criminal convictions resulting from being trafficked. Please join us in calling on the Senate and House of Representatives to pass this critical legislation.
