A new beginning for survivors of sex trafficking
What is Road to Rights?
An Arizona citizen convicted of felony prostitution before July, 24 2014 may be eligible to receive restoration of rights if there is evidence that the person's offense was result of sex trafficking.
Road to Rights is a voter outreach initiative developed and supported through the Secretary of State's office supporting survivors of sex trafficking.
When a person is convicted of a felony they lose, among many things, their citizen rights; that is their right to vote, to sit on a jury, to run for public office and to own a firearm. Many survivors of sex trafficking are unfortunately misidentified as criminals and charged with felony prostitution.
Road to Rights is a collaborative program that brings together government agencies, law enforcement, the county attorney's offices, public defenders, nonprofits, victim's services, faith-based organizations and others to build a supportive network designed to find trafficking survivors, inform them of their rights, and build a cohesive system of communication that will help Arizona see a future where sex trafficking survivor's rights are restored and their voices are included in our democratic process.
