    From our friends at the Community Campaign against Human Trafficking Tampa Bay ..

    Exciting News!    http://sharedhope.org/2014/05/21/unaimous-bipartisan-support-results-passage-5-anti-trafficking-bills/

    On May 20, with remarkable bipartisan support, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a series of five bills that will strengthen America's response to child victims of sex trafficking. The bills include:

    1. H.R. 3530, Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (JVTA)
    2. H.R. 3610, Stop Exploitation Through Trafficking Act of 2013 (SETT)
    3. H.R. 4058, Preventing Sex Trafficking and Improving Opportunities for Youth in Foster Care Act
    4. H.R. 4225, Stop Advertising Victims of Exploitation Act of 2014 (SAVE)
    5. H.R. 4573, International Megan's Law                                                                                       
    "We're excited to see a growing intolerance for the factors that make trafficking flourish: demand for commercial sex with minors, online classified sites that facilitate the sale of children, and a disregard for the protection from exploitation of homeless, runaway and foster youth," ~Linda Smith, President and Founder of Shared Hope International

    The Community Campaign Against Human Trafficking was one of two agencies selected by Ad 2 Tampa Bay as their 2013-2014 Public Service Client.  This is a tremendous opportunity as it will provide them a fully integrated marketing campaign to coincide with Human Trafficking Awareness Month (January) and help advocate the issue of human trafficking at an awareness level.

    Vanessa is the founder of Project Buy Her Back and was our speaker this month at our luncheon.  From all the ladies of Tampa Bay BPW and the guests that attended the event - thank you so much for sharing your story and putting a local perspective on the need to end Human Trafficking.  I know I was personally inspired by your efforts and those of others in the community to end this horrible practice.   For those unable to attend or interest in obtaining more information - please check out the Project Buy Her Back website.
