Initiative will fight back against human trafficking of women and children in California

California – A strong majority of California voters support Proposition 35, according to a poll released today by the California Business Roundtable and Pepperdine University School of Public Policy.  Slated for the November 2012 ballot, Proposition 35 is an initiative that will fight back against human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of women and children in the state.

The poll found that over 69% of California voters are likely to support Proposition 35.  Including voters who are leaning towards supporting the initiative, Proposition 35 garners 88% support.  These results set Proposition 35 apart from the rest of the initiatives on the ballot as the straightforward choice for California voters.

“We’re heartened by this clear demonstration that California voters want to take a stand against human trafficking in our state,” said Chris Kelly, Former Chief Privacy Officer at Facebook and Founder of Safer California Foundation.  “When voters hear about the urgent need for us to fight back against human traffickers and the sexual exploitation of children, they step up to do the right thing.  Over the coming months we’ll continue raising awareness and talking to voters around the state about Proposition 35.”

“These poll results show that even on a crowded ballot, Proposition 35 stands alone as a clear choice for voters and our state,” said Daphne Phung, Founder, California Against Slavery.  “By voting Yes on Proposition 35, we’re saying that we won’t tolerate the human trafficking of vulnerable women and children, and that hope is on the way for victims of this horrible crime.  That’s a powerful message we’ll continue sharing through our grassroots campaign.”
