Polaris thanks Congress for passing the Girls Count Act, an important measure that will help protect children around the world from human trafficking and other injustices. Something as simple as a birth certificate can safeguard children from forced labor and sexual exploitation. This law will make it U.S. Government policy to encourage birth registration of all girls and boys in other countries.

For the past 80 years, domestic workers in Connecticut have not been defined as employees. Without that recognition from the state, housekeepers, nannies, and other domestic workers have been left vulnerable to exploitation and abuse. This all changed last week, as Connecticut’s state legislature passed a law that recognizes domestic workers as employees and gives them the right to complain of mistreatment and discrimination.
Senate’s message for domestics, ‘You exist, by law’
On a night when all eyes were focused on the drama around budget negotiations, the Senate voted 33 to 3 for a small change in state law that defines domestics as employees, giving recognition denied them for 80 years.
