The End Trafficking in Government Contracting Act would do more to hold contractors accountable for human rights abuses – sign the petition and urge Congress to pass the bill now.

U.S. Government contractors have made billions from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But now, several are being investigated for slave labor.

Vinnie Tuivaga, a hairdresser from Fiji, was one of the many victims who fell into the trap of modern slavery. Recruited to work in a luxury hotel in Dubai, instead she was trafficked to a military base in Iraq. She was forced to live in a shipping container, paid only a fraction of what was promised, and was unable to leave.

Meanwhile, the contractors kept the difference, lining their pockets with the taxes of ordinary American families.

U.S. tax dollars were never meant to fund slavery.

Over 150,000 people have already signed the petition – will you tell the U.S. Senate to pass the bipartisan End Trafficking in Government Contracting Act and stop taxpayer-funded modern slavery?

  • September 25, 2013: President Obama announced an Executive Order to crack down on government contractors that have been accused of human trafficking.  The executive order is a major step toward preventing human trafficking by contractors, but it doesn’t go far enough.

Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.
