Petition: Tell US Congress to end modern slavery in corporate supply chains

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives are considering the Business Supply Chain Transparency on Trafficking and Slavery Act of 2015 that encourages businesses to disclose what efforts they take to identify human trafficking in supply chains. You can tell the House of Representatives to hold companies accountable for the millions of children, men, and women trapped in the everyday nightmare of forced labor. These disclosures would also allow consumers to make informed decisions about what products they buy and which companies they invest in.

Tell the House of Representatives to take the first step to passing the Business Supply Chain Transparency on Trafficking and Slavery Act of 2015 (H.R. 3226) by holding a hearing. Together we can shine a light on this hidden crime.
