  Rep. Loudermilk Op-Ed: Shining light on shadowy world of human trafficking  
  From the AJC:

"It has been said that sunlight is the best disinfectant; unfortunately, many of the victims of human trafficking spend their days in the shadows. Their captors brainwash them with lies, like no one loves them, and spin a future that holds nothing but fear, pain, and hardship, leading some to believe suicide is the best way out. For those victims who do escape, many are burdened with survivors’ guilt and choose not to tell anyone, hoping their life will just continue as if nothing ever happened.

While our nation celebrates many freedoms, sadly, the United States isn’t free from this horrific crime. More than 40 million men, women, and children are trafficked across the globe every year; and thousands of those victims are from the United States. Additionally, one in four victims of human trafficking is a young child. According to one study prepared for the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, the age of exploitation could be as unimaginable as eleven or younger."

  In the News: Conservative Lawmakers Sign Brief Supporting Religious Liberty  
  From Senator Mike Lee:

"Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) and over two dozen other lawmakers signed an amicus brief Monday, supporting Our Lady of Guadalupe School and St. James Catholic School in their religious liberty cases before the Supreme Court. From the brief:

“The teaching of religious principles and customs is at the very core of faith for many, if not most, religions. Yet in the two opinions under review, the Ninth Circuit barely addressed the importance of this aspect of religion. Quite to the contrary, the court minimized the significance of ‘teaching from a book’—a striking position given that most of the world’s major religions consider the teachings found in holy books to be the very essence of their faith.”

  From the Wall Street Journal: 

"Bias and fairness in artificial intelligence are complicated issues, experts told lawmakers Wednesday, but the technology needs to be regulated to ensure financial-services companies using it don’t discriminate against minorities and women.

At a hearing of the House Financial Services Committee’s AI task force, a panel of mostly academics offered ways to keep the technology in check."
