NFRW to continue championing fight against 'modern form of slavery'
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 11, 2018
ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Jody Rushton, president of the National Federation of Republican Women, issued the following statement on President Trump signing into law the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA, H.R. 1865):
“Today, Republican women across the country are celebrating this important step toward shutting down the despicable websites used to exploit women through sex-trafficking and punishing those responsible. The NFRW has championed the fight against human trafficking – a crime whose victims are disproportionately women. President Trump’s signature on this anti-human-trafficking legislation is a strike for freedom for women – and we look forward to building on today’s momentum to finally put an end to this modern form of slavery.”
FOSTA was introduced by Congresswoman Ann Wagner of Missouri and received broad support from many other Republican women in Congress.
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest and most influential Republican women’s group in the nation, proudly representing the party that first made it possible for women to vote in the U.S. The NFRW works to increase the effectiveness and relevance of women in the cause of good government. Our mission remains to recruit and elect Republican candidates, promote the principles of the Republican Party, educate the public and inform the media.
