Supporters of Strong Human Trafficking Law Will Rally in Sacramento
California Against Slavery to call for tougher state laws against human trafficking at State Capitol rally
SACRAMENTO -- June 1, 2010 -- California Against Slavery will host a rally in Sacramento , Calif. , on June 28, 2010, to call for stronger human trafficking laws in California and stress the growing problem of human trafficking in the state.
"Human trafficking is a criminal business that profits from enslaving people for sexual servitude and forced labor. It is flourishing in California because the law is weak," said Daphne Phung, executive director of California Against Slavery. "There is an urgent need for laws that would provide stiffer measures to stop traffickers, better protection for human trafficking victims, and greater funding for organizations that serve human trafficking victims. We are calling all Californians to speak up at the rally. Let's make a big deal of a big issue."
The rally will start at Raley Field at 9:45 a.m on June 28, 2010. The group will march to the State Capitol West Steps at 10 a.m. The rally will feature speakers, musical performances, and visits to the offices of California legislators.
