Solution: Proposition 35
- Our laws reflect our societal values. Human trafficking is a brutal human rights abuse. It is also a lucrative criminal business. Current California laws offer little protection for victims targeted by human traffickers and online predators. It is crucial to decrease incentives and increase the risk for those involved in the enslavement and exploitation of human beings.
- Slated for the November 2012 California Ballot, the Proposition 35 ( the CASE Act) will deter traffickers with higher penalties and fines, use fines to fund victim services, remove barriers to prosecute child sex traffickers, mandate training for law enforcement officers, require convicted sex traffickers to register as sex offenders, require all sex offenders to disclose Internet accounts, and protect victims in court proceedings.
- Additionally, the Prop 35 will raise awareness and unite Californians to take action. With up to 17 million voters, this will form the largest single movement against human trafficking in the U.S.
