January is Human Trafficking and Slavery awareness month. "And because of that, right under our noses, human traffickers are able to exploit major gaps in our visa program", Deutch said. According to statistics reported by the hotline, North Carolina ranked 10th in reported human trafficking cases in 2016.

"I am very excited by what this conference will do". "One of our concerns is teens who are trafficked", said Scott Pettygrove, the director of the county's Human Services Agency. "Faith based organizations, community based organizations, parents, teachers, and healthcare professionals are all part of the solutions!" In that same time frame, the bureau recovered 30 adult sex traficking victims and four child sex trafficking victims.

She said when the topic of human trafficking comes up, she is commonly asked if it even happens in Southern Illinois.

Pete Ricketts and various state lawmakers and law enforcement officials heralded the new anti-sex trafficking education effort Thursday. The center provides services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for sex trafficking victims and survivors in Northeast Wisconsin. "If we don't stand up and fight for these women - because a lot of them don't have the voice, the opportunity, and they don't have the strength to fight for themselves - if we don't speak up for them, there's nobody else doing it for them", she said. This proclamation is one in a series of legislative proposals and executive actions to be presented at the 2018 Maryland General Assembly aimed at protecting victims of human trafficking and other sexually based crimes. Are the individuals you see withdrawn, afraid to talk or is their communication censored?

"The sad reality is that becoming a victim of a crime often shatters a person's sense of security".

Dickey says victims of trafficking or anyone who has information on trafficking crimes can call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888.

With the new laws on the books, the state hopes to educate Nebraskans and its visitors about the tougher approach, Peterson said. Selden says it's what comes after victims are removed from trafficking that will make the biggest difference and right now the state just doesn't have all the resources. "We need to change our everyday way of thinking about these offenses".

"I looked at that picture and I determined if I didn't get involved, who would get involved", he said.
