CWA of Missouri: The Fight Against Online Sex Trafficking (Second Saturday) – Ellisville

March 9 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We are honored to have State Sen. Bob Onder (R-District 2) as our guest speaker. Sen. Onder is the sponsor of SB37, the state counterpart to the federal Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act. Sen. Onder will discuss SB 37 and other important legislation that is going through the Missouri General Assembly this session.

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, there has been an 846% increase in reports of suspected child sex trafficking from 2010 to 2015. To combat this problem in Missouri, Sen. Onder introduced SB37. This bipartisan legislation, similar to federal legislation sponsored by U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner (R), would empower law enforcement at the state level to go after websites like Backpage that knowingly facilitate human trafficking.

Please join us for an informative and lively discussion.
