As the State Director of CWA of Maine I submitted written testimony today to the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee regarding L.D. #250, “An Act to Increase the Penalty for Aggravated Sex Trafficking”.

Human trafficking and commercial sex exploitation are a violation of human rights and a form of sexual violence. It’s way past time to get tough on this heinous behavior going on in our state and nation.  Government’s priority is to protect the lives of innocent citizens.  We believe increasing the penalty for such acts of aggravated sex trafficking will take a giant step in doing just that.

Take Action: Please contact the members of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee and ask them to support this legislation.  Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Maine. For talking points, please read my written testimony.
