Cuomo: Fund Services for Trafficking Victims

Governor Cuomo just signed a law that will ensure 16 and 17 year-old sex-trafficking victims are provided social services instead of jail time. Advocates have worked tirelessly for this new law, which will help sex trafficking victims get the services they need to get on with their lives.

Now, we must ensure there is funding behind this law so these services can be implemented. To receive this funding, it MUST be included in the Governor’s Executive budget, which will be released within the next two weeks.

Take Action!
