San Diego County, nonprofit partner on anti-sex trafficking campaign

To mark National Human Trafficking Awareness Day Attorney General Andy Beshear joined leaders of Louisville's Free2Hope, Kristy Love Foundation and Women of the Well to support survivors of human trafficking.

Active law enforcement operations to target and stop child sex trafficking have already begun, Peterson said as lawmakers announced a new awareness campaign to address the problem.

Coles is the Chair for the Human Trafficking Commission.

You may think human trafficking is scarce in West Virginia because it is not easily found on the streets, but experts say it manifests differently in Appalachia.

In the afternoon, Beshear and his wife, Britainy, visited the Kristy Love Foundation and Women of the Well's House of Esther to deliver in-kind items donated by staff from the Office of the Attorney General to benefit victims of human trafficking. Rojas said her mother passed her off to men "before shoe-tying age".

Statewide decrees in Ohio, Texas, Kansas and Arkansas require new CDL holders to undergo trafficking awareness training as well, while the U.S. Senate approved a bill permanently denying felons guilty of human trafficking crimes from gaining employment as drivers. There are two types of human trafficking sex and trade, this is considered modern day slavery.

Between 2007 and 2017, 594 cases of human trafficking in the State of CT were reported to the National Human Trafficking Hotline. "We were fortunate enough to have a lot of victims come forward". Enough Is Enough (EIE), a non partisan/ non-profit organization, is an organization on a mission to make the internet safer for children and families.

Dozens of state agencies from law enforcement to lawmakers have joined in the fight against human sex trafficking. Unfortunately of the 50% who did contact a health professional, none were identified as a victim.

"Online dating has become very prominent", Clark said.

As with all crimes, if you see something, say something. She says the thinking behind that was to get them into protective custody and get them the help and services they need while they are in jail or detention. If you have information about a possible trafficking situation, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) at 1-888-373-7888 toll free. When asked how Valley Crisis Center helps victims, Chee said, "We have a 24-hour crisis line".
