H.R.4058 - 113th Congress (2013-2014): Preventing Sex Trafficking and Improving Opportunities for Youth in Foster Care Act | Congress.gov | Library of Congress


Nationally, 60% of aged out foster children become convicted felons, 75% of these young women become pregnant, and 25% become homeless. Republican Congressman Dave Reichert, and Democratic Congressman Karen Bass have introduced to legislation a means to improve life for foster children by making foster homes safer, improving their opportunities, and preventing sex trafficking of these children. I think it’s really nice that Democrat AND a Republican are teaming up to confront this issue. Educate yourself, and if you feel like supporting this cause you can submit your signature to senate.
