Despite the fact that Connecticut has made significant gains in the fight against human trafficking, the legislature this year failed to act on a bill that would have aligned our state’s definition of human trafficking with the federal definition. This language change was not merely symbolic: it would provide victims with greater protections and hold offenders more accountable. But time ran out and this important legislative proposal did not get a vote. In this Op-Ed, Love146 US Survivor Care Program Director Erin Williamson and Krystal Rich, the director of the Connecticut Children’s Alliance, urge lawmakers to take action next year.
