NOT HERE Presents: The Governor’s Summit on Human Trafficking
November 12 & 13, 2015
The Countdown: 91 days remaining
August 4th began our 100 day countdown leading up to The Governor’s Summit on Human Trafficking in Maine. Over these 100 days, we will be sharing a fact, a resource, or a perspective each day, to raise awareness, encourage discussion, and inspire action against injustice, both domestically, and globally.
Today’s Featured Fact:
A new bill calling for transparency in corporate supply chains has been introduced in the House.
H.R. 3226 was introduced in the House by Mrs. Carolyn B. Maloney of New York on July 27, 2015. If passed, it will amend the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to require certain companies to disclose information including but not limited to: efforts the company has taken to identify and address human trafficking, slavery, forced labor, and the worst forms of child labor within the company’s supply chains.
We invite you to like us on facebook, follow us on twitter, and share these resources in your social networks to help us raise awareness that yes, human trafficking DOES happen in Maine AND around the globe, and EVERYONE needs to be involved to stop it.
