Today is the day. The Kids Are Not For Sale in Virginia Coalition (KANFS) is an advocacy campaign to pass sex trafficking legislation in Virginia, one of the last states in the nation to make it a crime to traffic humans for commercial sex acts, like prostitution, pornography, and sexual performance.
As a member of the Coalition, the Center for Global Justice will be attending today’s press conference and we invite you to join us in prayer for this effort.
Kids Are Not for Sale in Virginia (KANFS) PRESS CONFERENCE
When: Wednesday, January 21 | 10:30am
Where: Virginia General Assembly – House Briefing Room, 201 N. 9th Street, Richmond, VA 23219
Speakers: Virginia Delegate Tim Hugo & Senator Mark D. Obenshain
Virginia Delegate Tim Hugo & Senator Mark D. Obenshain
introduced HB 1964 (Hugo) and SB 1188 (Obenshain) to establish a standalone sex trafficking statute, filling a key gap in Virginia’s response to sex trafficking.
This law can be a vital tool for Virginia prosecutors, law enforcement, and advocacy groups, ensuring better protection of children and deterring the migration of the crime to Virginia.
