Pax Christi USA has signed onto a letter in support of The End Modern Slavery Initiative Act, which was introduced in the Senate this past week.

This would be the most dramatic increase in funding for anti-human trafficking efforts we have ever seen, through leveraging U.S. leadership and foreign aid to attract investments from the private sector and foreign governments.
