Combat Human Trafficking
Atlanta has one of the highest incidence rates of human trafficking in the country. Hundreds of young girls and boys are sold every month right here in Georgia. I was proud to cosponsor legislation in Congress that shut down scores of sex trafficking websites and gave our law enforcement more tools to investigate, arrest and prosecute traffickers. I left home when I was just 17, and I know that it is by the grace of God that I remained safe and have been able to have such an amazing journey. That’s why I am determined to end the horror of trafficking.
