I just wanted you to know that today is INTERNATIONAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING AWARENESS DAY.
Human trafficking is abhorrent in any form, and strengthening state law to put an end to these abuses was one of my top priorities in the legislature last year, where I was proud to work with my colleagues to help draft and amend House Bill 6657 “An Act Concerning Human Trafficking” that, in addition to other things:

A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this legislation possible, including the co-chair of the Judiciary Committee, Rep. Stafstrom, for his commitment to this legislation and the victims it aims to help.
