Senate and House Passes FOSTA-SESTA

Last week the Senate passed FOSTA-SESTA (Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act and Stop Enabling Sex Trafficking Act). This legislation is a great victory in the fight to end the modern-day slavery of online sex trafficking by giving victims their day in court and empowering state Attorney Generals to prosecute websites that facilitate sex trafficking. The Senate’s bipartisan vote, following the vote in the House, brings survivors of sex trafficking a major step closer to justice and to holding the websites that facilitated their abuse accountable.

Thank you to all who contacted Senators and requested that they listen to survivors and amend the Communications Decency Act. Your calls, emails and social media activism made a difference!
