TONIGHT: Groups to Project “Acosta Enables Sex Trafficking. Acosta Must Go” on Capitol Hill Tonight
Coming off the heels of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta’s press conference this afternoon, I wanted to flag that progressive, labor an women’s groups – including the American Federation of Teachers, CREDO Action, MoveOn, and UltraViolet, will project “ACOSTA ENABLES SEX TRAFFICKING. ACOSTA MUST GO” on a U.S. government building on Capitol Hill tonight.
Shaunna Thomas, executive director at UltraViolet, explained, “Congress should open a full investigation into why child sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein was protected over the survivors of his abuse. That means investigating every single enabler of Epstein’s abuse, from Labor Secretary Alex Acosta to President Donald Trump, and every celebrity and business mogul in between, and includes starting impeachment proceedings into Acosta, who broke the law to hand a serial pedophile a sweetheart deal. The American people cannot afford a President and Labor Secretary who would rather shield wealthy sexual abusers from prosecution than protect sexually trafficked children.”
