As the 2022 legislative session kicked off this week, the Marsy's Law for Iowa team headed up to the golden dome to call attention to Human Trafficking Awareness Day (#WearBlueDay).
According to the latest figures available to the NHTH, in 2019, 246 contact calls were made from Iowa to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, and there were 98 human trafficking cases reported that year. That is an astounding number and there are many organizations across the state who are in the fight against human trafficking each and every day. We were honored to join with them to call attention to this day and the effects of human trafficking on Iowans, to legislators at the capitol.
We were so thankful to legislators who shared our message and awareness of human trafficking.
A big thanks to the organizations who joined us, who are in the fight against human trafficking:
