On August 24 a former employee at an import business near the Empire State Building in New York City shot and killed a former co-worker. WABC-TV turned to Safe Horizon for an expert point of view about the shooting, discussing workplace violence and how companies and individuals can deal with it.

Safe Horizon supports the Strengthening the Child Welfare Response to Human Trafficking Act, a lifesaving legislation that will improve how child victims of the brutal crime of human trafficking are identified, tracked, and helped through child protection agencies. Child protection agencies are often the first line of defense against child trafficking, and by helping them develop better guidelines for recognizing victims, serving them, and tracking them, they will also become better at preventing child exploitation.
Help Safe Horizon send our representatives a message about how important this bill is to vulnerable children who deserve and need better and safer futures.
