Fighting Human Trafficking

According to a recent report, Virginia ranks 6th in active federal human trafficking cases. This year, the House of Delegates passed legislation to help combat human trafficking here in the Commonwealth, building on our longstanding commitment to battling this scourge across our Commonwealth..

Legislation by Delegate Jason Miyares requires the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority and the Virginia Employment Commission to post information for the human trafficking hotline in government stores and employment offices.

The purpose of the legisaltion is to alert possible witnesses or victims of human trafficking to the availability of a means to report crimes or gain assistance.

Further promoteing the human trafficking hotline is another of the 51 accomplishments by the 51 members of the Republican-led House of Delegates.
