End human trafficking and modern-day slavery in the United S

President Obama and Congress: End human trafficking and modern-day slavery in the United States of America  http://signon.org/sign/president-obama-and-congress-2
We occasionally hear about human (child) sex trafficking in countries other than the USA. However,Portland, Oregon, where I live, is a hub of human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Your own area likely has human trafficking, too. It's a billion dollar industry worldwide. For some reason I am not getting many signatures on my petition, so please, please sign it. MoveOn will deliver it when it has 50 signatures. I was sure I would get thousands, but no success thus far. So please sign and forward to your friends, lists, and share on Facebook.
