Strengthen Anti-Human Trafficking Programs

Urge the Senate to reauthorize the Trafficking Victims Protection Act

Freedom happens now –Polaris Project

In partnership with Polaris Project I urge all conscious citizens to join myself, Polaris and all those teams that are combating human trafficking in our cities, in our nation and in our world.  Tim Ballard of Operation Underground Railroad, a commando jump team that rescues victims of human trafficking and slavery, states that in the 21 Century, there are more people enslaved to the evil forces than at anytime in world history.  According to the Global Slave Index, 45.8 million people are enslaved in the world today. Polaris says 20.9 million of those victims are human trafficked into sex slaves and labor slaves.

We must stop this enormous evil of human trafficking and slavery and drive it to the halls of justice where our courts can put these predators of human beings away for a long, long time. Predators who prey on women and children, and men who fall victim and vulnerable. We must all join forces if we are conscious citizens and ensure that no human being is denied their inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness by another. We must ensure that no evil force takes away the freedom and independence of any citizen of our nation or of another. We must ensure that no evil predator is preying upon our citizens or citizens of the world. That no human being on this planet is denied their inalienable human rights. We can only ensure that message by standing strong and together in a resounding voice to our government legislators and executive officials that we have zero tolerance for human trafficking and slavery. We can send that message today to our federal Senators to strengthen anti-human trafficking programs. All citizens deserve freedom. No citizen deserves slavery. We must not allow the issues of human trafficking, sexual and labor slavery, human rights violators that kidnap and imprison and sell men, women and children for sexual and labor slaves be less than our priority. We must not.

U.S. Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has recently spoken out about his will and dedication in combating human trafficking. The U.S. House of Representatives voted in July to reauthorize the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. Now we must suggest to our senators to do the same. Our nation is faced with a lot of decisions that will compete for the dollars from our budget. We must not let our nation’s most precious commodity–our people–be left behind to be victimized by predators and slavemasters.  The Polaris Project reaches out to help those victims of human predators.

Keeli Sorensen, Director of Government Relations and Public Policy at Polaris, has sent supporters notice of the Traffic Victims Protection Act expiring in 2017.  Polaris has formulated easy communication for supporters, advocates and others to join in on our efforts to encourage our senators to likewise reauthorize the Trafficking Victims Protection Act.  To also reaffirm our priorities in our human interests–our people.

Human trafficker combaters and anti-slavery fighters all across the nation unite to direct their senators to reaffirm the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and protect our nations most valuable assets, our people, and especially the children.  Our people deserve justice and justice our people shall be served. Because Polaris put together a superb communication for our senators, I forward them below. Please contact your own senators using the Polaris pre-designed letter I sent my senators or draft your own with similar communication. The next human trafficking victim or slavery target may be someone you know. Act now. It only takes a little bit of your time. Contact your senators and save another human from being trafficked or enslaved.

Today’s e-mail notice 1421 hours 24 August 2017:

Dear Cliff,
This morning, Polaris experienced technology issues that were unfortunately outside of our control. As a result, many of our advocates were unable to take action after receiving the email below.

This issue is so important, we decided to send the message again. The Trafficking Victims Protection Act will expire if the United States Senate fails to act. Urge your senators to strengthen and reauthorize the TVPA today!

Thank you for your patience and support.
– Keeli Sorensen

Earlier e-mail 0733 hours 24 August 2017:

Dear Cliff,
On July 12, the United States House of Representatives voted to reauthorize the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. Now our attention turns toward the Senate.

Act Now: Protect the progress we’ve made over fifteen years. Urge Congress to reauthorize the Trafficking Victims Protection Act.

You’ve seen it in the news, tragic stories of adults and children, victims of human trafficking, transported by semi-trailer in deadly heat. We at Polaris hear similar stories daily at the National Human Trafficking Hotline we operate.

Unfortunately, the criminal networks who exploit people through force, fraud, and coercion for forced labor or commercial sex are becoming more sophisticated in their approaches and are increasing the scope of their activities. There’s never been a more important time to strengthen and reauthorize the TVPA.

Urge the Senate to make reauthorizing the TVPA a priority.

For fifteen years we have made strides in protecting victims of human trafficking. This wouldn’t have been possible without your help and the collaboration of policymakers, service providers, and law enforcement. TVPA is the law that forms the legal foundation of these efforts and must be reauthorized.

If we don’t act, this important law could lapse – resulting in more tragic trafficking stories. Ask the Senate to reauthorize the TVPA today.
Sincerely,

Keeli Sorensen

Reauthorize the Trafficking Victims Protection Act

I urge you to prioritize the fight to end human trafficking by maintaining critical federal programs that combat trafficking and support victims. I ask that you work to support victims and survivors, service providers and law enforcement by advancing a holistic, anti-trafficking response which promotes effective prosecution of traffickers, assistance for victims, and thoughtful prevention efforts.

First and foremost, I urge you to reauthorize the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA). We have made great strides since the TVPA was first passed into law in 2000, and we need your ongoing leadership with this legislation. In addition, we need to accomplish the following in 2017:

* Prosecution: Because trafficking is currently a low-risk, high-profit business, organized, sophisticated criminal networks have developed the capability to operate both nationally and internationally. Serious prosecution efforts will require that federal agencies have adequate funding to properly investigate and dismantle these large-scale organizations.

* Protection: Victims of human trafficking still need greater protection. Supporting the Trafficking Survivors Relief Act, the SOAR to Health and Wellness Act, and providing funding for the National Human Trafficking Hotline and local service providers enables survivors to get help and stay safe.

* Prevention: In order to prevent human trafficking, we need to support efforts like the Visa Transparency Anti-Trafficking Act, which works to improve data collection methods to understand the scope, size, and systems of modern slavery. More accurate data collection and improving the transparency of temporary visa systems can help us better understand how traffickers are leading people into forced labor or commercial sex against their will.

* Partnerships: We must build stronger cross-border collaboration across North America and beyond to stop traffickers and support survivors. International partnerships between governments and NGOs to share resources, data, and strategies are critical, because a global problem requires a global response.

I won’t back down in the fight against human trafficking, and I urge you to support these efforts as well.

Sincerely,

Cliff Harrison

The fight has just begun. Won’t you join us? We ask for your help. Be on the good team, and sleep better at night. Contact your senators and contribute what you can to the organizations listed on this page and at Sunrise Mountain Publishing that fights human trafficking, slavery, and searches for missing persons, victims of violence, crime and evil predators. In addition to funding anti-human trafficking and anti-slavery missions, your purchase of my books also helps support teams who conducts ground searches and recovery, digging suspected burial sites, and deploying underwater search and recovery for victims of evil and tragedy. Our teams supports rescue, recovery and refuge of victims of evil and tragedy. You can’t be on a better team than that.

Freedom and Independence Is an Inalienable Right of Every Human Being on This Planet

These are some of the stories of people born without freedom and independence. We have a lot to do in order to secure the guarantee that all innocent citizens of the world are ensured their freedom and independence.

Captive in Iran

Captive in Iran: A Remarkable True Story of Hope and Triumph amid the Horror of Tehran’s Brutal Evin Prison
Captive in Iran, the Book

You can find many videos on YouTube with Maryam Rostampour’s and Marziyeh Amirizadeh’s miraculous story. Likewise there are many videos that expose the evils of Iran’s most notorious prison, Evin Prison in Tehran and the barbaric abuses of female prisoners, many who are innocent of what would be considered any serious crime in the western world. It is a patriarchic world where the female is born a second-class citizen owned and enslaved by man. She is forever the slave of patriarchy until she escapes or dies. Many never leave Evin prison alive.

Their book, Captive in Iran, can be purchased at Amazon.com and everywhere fine books are sold.

I gave Captive in Iran a 5-star review and highly recommend it to anyone who cares about humanity and justice:

“Superb, well written book. These girls went through hell in one of the world’s most demonic prisons in one of the most demonic lands. Imprisoned, not for something that could be considered a crime (Being Christian) in the western world, but only in the uncivilized dark corners of Iran. The world needs to clamp down on patriarchal societies that place females as second-class citizens and thrust them out of our civilized world. It is great to have Ms. Maryam Rostampour and Ms. Marziyeh Amirizadeh in America where they are free and independent and enjoying their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. We all pray for Ms. Shirin Alam Hooli, their dear friend, who wasn’t as fortunate and was executed by the barbarians of Iran’s brutal Evin Prison. Together, we all must work to bring change and awareness to this demonic culture.”

With 466 reviews, the book, Captive in Iran, rated a 4.8 star out of 5 at Amazon.com

I meant to post these videos in July, but my TBI, CFS and PTSD presented long periods of dysfunction. Sorry! The down time also prevented my latest book being released on schedule. Hopefully I will succeed in that, later this month.

I Washed My Face In the Morning Dew

When I was a young boy, growing into a teenager and then young adult, my late brother, Kenny, used to let me listen to his album collection. Later, when he went off to start his own life, he gave me that collection. They were the 33-1/3 RPM record albums. They were also called the LP or Long Playing albums. Among those vinyl albums were what are classics today. All of them were storytelling songs. Ballads, legends, love songs and a lot of truck-driving songs and songs about traveling. There was every trucker driver song and singing storyteller of the day. Too, among the high stack of classics were such greats of the times as the Beach Boys, the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, Ricky Nelson, Peter Paul and Mary, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, and many, many others.

Story telling music was a central part of my entertainment as well as aspiration. They stimulated my desires to be a writer, a storyteller and they inspired me to become a humanitarian.

We were poor. When I was 16 I started working at a a retail store. I purchased an 8-track player for a car I didn’t yet have and collected 8-track tapes. I had a large, growing collection to go along with my brother’s LP collection.

My late dad hooked up the 8-track player he setup for me in the backroom. Using alligator clamps he wired the player to a 12-volt car battery for juice. I learned to improvise early. Daddy was a master improviser. He didn’t live long enough to see me graduate at the age of 17. That’s always been a hollow spot in my heart. There was nothing I wanted more.

A lot of those songs were about people down on their luck. Traveling songs made up a lot of them. Love songs told about broken hearts. It was all part of the process that shaped my lifelong desire to be a storyteller, a writer. Too, it gave me the aspiration to be a humanitarian.

All of the songs in those days were written by great song writers of the time. They were sung by singing storytellers. One of the best among them was one of the newer guys that came along, Tom T. Hall. Like Bobby Bare and others, many of his songs were about traveling and people down on their luck. They told stories about people in great destitution. That was more than 50 years ago, about when a politician named Lyndon B. Johnson introduced into Congress what was called the Johnson Amendment. It was the beginning of the IRS 501(c)(3) and the War on Poverty. 50 years later, there are over one-million nonprofits and just as much destitution as there was in those days.

Tom T. Hall wrote and sang the song that stood out in that pile of albums and 8 track tapes with a voice all of its own. It was probably my favorite song, then, and now. He was a master at telling his stories so that you wouldn’t soon forget them. They called Tom T. Hall the Storyteller.

Honor Killing of Qandeel Baloch

Pakistan’s social-media queen, Qandeel Baloch, a world renown social celebrity, is dead from honor killing. Her brother murdered her, according to news reports breaking out of Pakistan at this hour. The video immediately below is a live stream out of Pakistan at 6:00 AM PST. Thousands of women are slain every year in Pakistan and Middle Eastern regions for dishonoring their family. THERE IS NO FREEDOM FOR FEMALES IN THE LAND AMERICA SPENDS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN SUPPORT. Ms. Baloch had fled Karachi to the Punjab or Multan region. There are conflicting reports, so time is needed to sort out the inaccurate reports. She was threaten with death. She was denied additional security from the Pakistan government. Attacks against her came too sudden for others to rescue her. Her escape was unsuccessful.

For millions of females enslaved under Sharia Law, there is no freedom and independence. Even at the age of 26, Qandeel Baloch was not able to live her life as she alone chose to live it. She was provocative, yes, but that is no reason the choice of her life, the clothes she desired to wear, the music she enjoyed playing and listening to and the lifestyle she chooses to live ought to bring her suffering death. This world must change course and DEMAND the banning of Sharia Law. Because one is born female is no excuse to enslave them as Islamic religion does. All women born under Islamic families have a birth right to freedom and independence. They have an inalienable right, a human right to be free and independent, to make their own choices of how they will live and conduct their life. We as a world must push the movement forward to free the females of Sharia Law slavery. Period!

BBC Report on Qandeel Baloch honor killing/

A woman’s behavior is not a man’s business. In Pakistan and most of the Arab and Islamic world females can be tortured or executed for such trivial things as failing to wear their vail, for the clothes they wear… or don’t wear. For dishonoring their family. For speaking to a male outside of their family membership and for adopting the Western culture and many other idiotic things based upon 7th Century culture.

It’s a sad day in the history of human rights that a world that calls itself modern and civilized continues to allow in the 21st Century a patriarchal culture and political ideology that enslaves the female in subversion, suppression, oppression, tyranny and ungodly evil.
