Call to Action! Letter Writing Campaign

Help us get the message out about the human trafficking happening in our backyard, as well as action steps our elected representatives can take to help victims. Our goal is to collect 500 signed letters before the start of the next legislative session in January. Once we collected all the letters we will march to the capitol and demand action!

To participate, fill out the letter below and we will make sure your legislator reads it. To find who your legislator is click this link (https://leg.colorado.gov/find-my-legislator) and put in your address. You can submit two letters for your House Representative and Senate, just put in their name where it says “Dear” and your information at the bottom. We ensure that your information will be secure. You can submit up to 4 letters (one for your House Representative and one for you Senate for each letter: Human Trafficking and Labor Trafficking). If you have any questions contact us at 720-420-9951 or by emailing Kaylee at admin@streetshope.org

  • I am writing today, as a constituent of your district, to shed light on a problem that is happening here in Colorado and is deeply concerning to me. Human trafficking effects many people across this region, and those who have been trafficked have had their voices silenced and are unable to choose the trajectory of their own lives. It is known that human trafficking impacts a large number of people here in our Colorado backyard. Over the past several years, it has been documented there are a consistently rising number of human trafficking reports. In 2017, the CoNEHT (Colorado Network to End Human Trafficking ) hotline received 423 calls from 251 unique callers, up from 310 and 194 in 2016. Of those calls, 21 reported labor trafficking, 76 reported sex trafficking, and 11 calls reported situations involving both labor and sex trafficking.
    • Consider sponsoring legislation that puts money into the hands of service providers. Working with those who have been exploited through human trafficking is a specialized skill set. While much funding has been used to promote awareness, we need to do a better job in providing access to care through specialized organizations. This can only be done with proper funding.
    • Call Street’s Hope to provide expertise. As a leader in working with victims and survivors of human trafficking, they know what people and organizations need to make an impact on this horrendous crime, happening in our Denver backyard. They can be reached at caroline@streetshope.org or 720-420-9951.
    I would appreciate a reply to hear you stance on supporting legislation to fund service providers to help some of the most vulnerable in our community. Sincerely,
