    When political rhetoric trumps child safety
    The Obama administration made a terrible mistake last week by dropping proposed rules designed to protect young children under age 16 hired as farmhands. Caving to public pressure from Big Agriculture and Republican lawmakers puts kids’ lives on the line.
    Even for adults, farming remains one of the nation’s most dangerous occupations. A tragedy near Center City, Minn., over the weekend serves as a sobering reminder. Cole Gustafson, 56, an agricultural economist at North Dakota State University, died Saturday after a tractor accident on his parents’ farm. Tractor accidents are the leading cause of farm fatalities.
    The Labor Department was on the right track last year when it proposed 15 new rules to keep young hired farm laborers safe. Many of the suggested safety measures were practical, such as seat belts for tractors and rollover bars on farm vehicles in which children often are hurt.

    Violence Against Women Act reauthorization bill passed by Senate
    The Senate voted 68 to 31 to pass the bill following an attempt by Democrats in recent weeks to paint Republican objections as a new assault on issues important to women. By Thursday, Republicans were insisting they also wished for speedy passage of the bill, despite their concerns.
    Republican leaders had urged the Democrats who control floor action to allow votes on a GOP-authored alternative to the bill, as well as an amendment by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) that would earmark new funds for testing a backlog of rape kits and impose new mandatory minimum sentences for perpetrators of some domestic violence crimes, including possession of child pornography. Both GOP measures failed Thursday.
    The Senate bill was crafted in consultation with law enforcement groups and victims advocates and was introduced with a filibuster-proof 61 co-sponsors, including eight Republicans.

    #ENDSLAVERY – Tweet your Senators to Co-Sponsor Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act by Johanna Olivas
    The Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), introduced in 2000, greatly increased America’s efforts to protect victims, assist survivors, improve prevention methods and successfully prosecute traffickers. Even though the TVPA has been reauthorized three times by bipartisan majorities, it was allowed to expire in September of 2011.
    To help move this critical legislation forward, Polaris Project, World Vision, International Justice Mission (IJM), and Safe Horizon are joining together to urge Congress to renew the TVPRA and help end slavery.
    TAKE ACTION NOW Now this is where we need you to take immediate action. Help us get the attention of Senators from across the country to co-sponsor the TVPRA by April 30. All you have to do is click on the buttons below to instantly tweet at Senators and urge them to take action for victims of human trafficking.
