Rally with Us at the State Capitol
New Friends New Life supports legislative policies that help victims of human trafficking and decrease demand for sex trafficking. State Representatives Tan Parker and Senfronia Thompson will carry legislation supported by New Friends New Life to strengthen the law and make Texas hostile ground for traffickers and a safe haven for victims. To voice our support of these human trafficking policies, New Friends New Life is co-sponsoring with Children at Risk a rally on the south steps of the capitol in Austin on Thursday, February 12, 2015. For more information on the initiatives, please read the legislative recommendations from the Office of the Attorney General, and the recommendations from New Friends New Life.
