Join us for our Anti-Human Trafficking Advocacy Day

February 25, 2013

South Steps of the Texas State Capitol

This Advocacy Day will be a day for all of us across the state to come together as a united voice against human trafficking.

We will be holding a press conference and rally at the South Steps of the Capitol at 10:00 am on February 25th to hear from our legislative champions, thank them for their dedication to the cause, and to urge them to continue to make human trafficking a priority issue during the 83rd Texas Legislative Session. A strong presence of advocates from across the state will help ensure that our priorities remain at the forefront during the legislative session. Please invite as many of your fellow staff, board members, volunteers, and friends to come and show their support!

We encourage you to schedule meetings to visit with legislative offices after the rally.
