SB 646 – Support Victims of Sex Trafficking Online

This bill allows parents and minor victims of sex trafficking and abuse to sue when images of their exploitation are posted online. Exploited children often have images of their abuse uploaded and shared online, including on social media sites. Each time that material is downloaded, shared, or viewed, their trauma is compounded and re-lived. Survivors deserve a tool to be able to have their images removed. This bill will help to deter traffickers and other bad actors from sharing sexually exploitive material of children and will empower survivors, helping them to recover their dignity and rebuild their lives. The Catholic community and religious sisters have led the way to fight human trafficking and continue to advocate for the most vulnerable.
