                         SUBMITTED RESOLUTIONS



  Mr. CORKER (for himself and Mr. Cardin) submitted the following 
resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations:

                              S. Res. 375

       Whereas it is estimated that tens of millions of children, 
     women, and men around the world are subjected to conditions 
     of modern slavery;
       Whereas the International Labour Organization estimates 
     that modern slavery generates more than $150,000,000,000 in 
     criminal profits each year;
       Whereas despite being outlawed in every nation, modern 
     slavery exists around the world, including in the United 
       Whereas around the world, 55 percent of forced labor 
     victims are women or girls, and nearly 1 in 5 victims of 
     slavery is a child; and
       Whereas each year, individuals around the world join 
     together to call for an end to modern slavery by symbolically 
     drawing a red ``X'' symbol on their hands to share the 
     message of the END IT movement: Now, therefore, be it
       Resolved, That the Senate--
       (1) commends each individual that supports the END IT 
     movement on February 25, 2016;
       (2) notes the dedication of individuals, organizations, and 
     governments to end modern slavery; and
       (3) calls for concerted, international action to bring an 
     end to modern slavery around the world.
