Child WELFARE AND Protection

Protecting children is at the core of ICM’s mission. Working in concert with other interfaith and advocacy organizations, ICM has championed efforts to fund programs that support children who have been trafficked and ensured that victims of trafficking are not jailed as prostitutes.

During the 2021 legislative session, ICM highlighted and supported two bills advancing the rights of trafficking victims. Senate Bill 33provides a cause of action against perpetrators for victims of human trafficking. Senate Bill 34 allows victims of human trafficking to petition for name change under seal. Each bill passed both chambers of the legislature and are pending before the Governor for his signature.

Human trafficking is but one of the areas that demands we stay vigilant by being engaged, learning, sharing, and reaching out to decision and policy makers on issues impacting the wellbeing of children. Below you will find links and resources on issues relating to childcare and child protection.

    “Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.
