South Carolina Human Trafficking Lobby Day

December 30, 2011
Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing criminal industries, and it happens right here in South Carolina. Children, adults, U.S. citizens and foreign nationals can be victims of human trafficking who experience horrible physical and psychological abuse, as well as a complete loss of freedom. But you can do something about it.

Please mark your calendar to join human trafficking advocates from around the State on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, for the South Carolina Lobby Day to End Human Trafficking! On this day you will have an opportunity to advocate for legislation that will eliminate this horrific crime. Your presence at the Capitol is one of the most powerful ways to ensure that your legislators recognize human trafficking as a serious crime and use their voices and votes to support critically needed legislation. So grab a friend and join us in Columbia for an exciting day of advocacy to help end human trafficking in South Carolina! Never been to a lobby day before? No problem! You don’t need to be an expert on human trafficking or have any lobbying experience to take part. Polaris Project will have experts on site to brief you on human trafficking, train you on how to lobby your legislators, and answer any questions you may have. All you need to do is RSVP and we will help you with everything.
