January: Human Trafficking Prevention Month

New Friends New Life staff, board members, and supporters met with Governor Greg Abbott in Austin to advocate for laws against human trafficking in Texas.

This January marks Texas’s first human trafficking prevention month officially mandated by state law. Thanks to bill authors Representatives Tan Parker, Morgan Meyer and John Frullo, Texas House Bill 2290 was signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott on June 17, 2015. This important bill increases education and awareness of this horrific crime in Texas, which ranks second in the country for the most calls to the human trafficking hotline. New Friends New Life is grateful for the opportunity to have worked with policymakers and community advocates who are willing to stand up and give a voice to the voiceless. 

Join New Friends New Life this month in raising awareness of human trafficking in your communities and circles of influence. Follow New Friends New Life on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up-to-date on issues related to human trafficking and how you can help make a difference in the lives of formerly trafficked women and children.
