Prop 35 Breaks Record

By Bena Vohra, Sr. SPAC Delegate

California voters sent a loud and clear message to human traffickers by approving Proposition 35 in record-breaking numbers! With an 81.1% “Yes” vote, the C.A.S.E. Act set the new record as the most successful ballot proposition in California’s history! The highest recorded "Yes" vote for a California initiative was 79%, a record which was set back in 1934.

Proposition 35, the C.A.S.E. Act, expands the definition of human trafficking, increases penalties for traffickers, requires convicted sexual traffickers to register as sex offenders, and requires additional training for law enforcement officers.
