Corker Joins END IT Movement to “Shine a Light on Slavery”

WASHINGTON – On “Shine a Light on Slavery Day” sponsored by the END IT Movement, U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee, expressed support for U.S. and international efforts to stop human trafficking.

“It may be hard to believe in this day and age, but millions of people around the world are imprisoned in modern day slavery.  The scourge of human trafficking that hurts the most vulnerable people, particularly women and children, is a heartbreaking global reality, destroying millions of lives while also funding crime and terrorism that threaten security and stability around the world.  I join all those speaking out today in support of making sure the U.S. and the international community are using effective tools to end it now,” said Corker.
