Not For Sale in SC?

When I went to the NotForSaleCampaign.com website I noticed that there was no state director for this in SC. If it's happening in Atlanta, GA, then it's happening in Columbia, Greenville...and Charleston. What are we going to do about it?

Georgians Advocate
to Fund Services for Survivors

Not For Sale - Georgia has teamed up with State Senators Jack Murphy & Renee Untermann to fund needed services for children who have been victims of sex slavery on the streets of Atlanta and around the state.Volunteers representing Not For Sale - Georgia were at the Gold Dome last week passing out white roses and reminding legislators that it is time to stand up for Georgians who are victims of modern-day slavery. Sen. Murphy introduced legislation that would add a $5 surcharge to those who enter the numerous strip clubs in the state. All of the money would go to fund counseling, educational, and restorative services for sexually exploited children.

Check out Not For Sale Georgia reps Brendan Horgan, Cara Holland, Liz Hibbard and Faith Riley in this week's CNN piece on advocating for victims' rights. Click here to watch the clip!
