I finally have some energy after my surgery to talk a little bit more about #FOFSTA/#SESTA. Today, I want to talk to you about why a lot of anti-trafficking agencies were not able to say much against the acts publicly. I don't know how many of you know that a lot of the federal #humantrafficking funding is tied in some weird political crap. While generally a bipartisan issue, there is a lot of conservative control of the way funding gets distributed.

I have a personal story to share about how #SESTA could affect me as an advocate and a legal representative for survivors of human trafficking. When I first started working in this movement I had a client who had in fact been trafficked as a minor and forced into commercial sex.
