California legislation information–SB 14

https://grove.cssrc.us/sb14

Senator Shannon Grove has introduced Senate Bill 14, a bill that would include human trafficking in the lists of crimes that are defined as serious and violent under California law, making the crime a strike under the Three Strikes law. If passed, SB 14 will help strengthen protections for the millions of victims of sex and labor trafficking. 

CA Victims Compensation Board-this link provides information regarding victim support, DV, sexual assault, plus suggested social media posts you may use.

Governor Newsom signed SB 14 (Grove) to make the trafficking of a minor for purposes of a commercial sex act a serious felony.

Nevada Child & Youth Sex Trafficking Report Card – https://reportcards.sharedhope.org/nevada/

Nevada, in particular Las Vegas, is one of the most common destinations for traffickers to sell children for sex and for buyers to purchase them. Our state has been taking positive steps forward to support commercially sexually exploited children (CSEC)1 , most recently through the passage of Assembly Bill 151 and Senate Bill 293 in the 80th Session of the Nevada Legislature in 2019. Assembly Bill 151 provided the framework for the state’s child welfare agencies to accept reports and ensure services for all CSEC, regardless of their relationship to their trafficker. Senate Bill 293 (SB 293) required the development of a plan to establish the infrastructure to provide treatment, housing, and services to CSEC
