Sen. John Albers to Sponsor Anti-Human Trafficking Legislation

Yesterday, Governor Brian Kemp and the First Lady of Georgia Marty Kemp outlined proposed legislation to be introduced during the 2020 Legislative Session resulting from the GRACE (Georgians for Refuge, Action, Compassion, and Education) Commission specifically designed to combat human trafficking.


Sen. John Albers (R – Roswell) will sponsor one of the pieces of legislation in the Senate. “I would like to praise the outstanding work of the Governor and the First Lady for their leadership on this important issue,” said Sen. Albers. “Too often, we hear stories of children who are forcefully abducted and sold into the world of human trafficking. As Chairman of the Senate Public Safety Committee, I am dedicated to doing all I can to bring an end to this inhumane practice. I was proud to stand with the Grace Commission
to help combat and end human trafficking and I will be sponsoring legislation in the Senate on behalf of Governor Brian Kemp and First Lady Marty Kemp that the Commission has created. Through these efforts, we are sending a clear message to those who operate in this dark world: you can run, but you cannot hide.”


The proposed legislation will be introduced in the coming days. For more information on the GRACE Commission, follow this link: https://gov.georgia.gov/first- lady/grace-commission
