Today, February 11th, the Violence Against Women Act (S.47) will be debated and possibly voted on in the Senate. Senator Leahy has offered the full text of S. 1301, the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, as an amendment. The amendment will have to be voted on before it can be attached to the Violence Against Women Act. We are asking the Senate to vote yes on the amendment and yes on the Violence Against Women Act- both votes needed to pass this important piece of anti-trafficking legislation.
