Highlighting Human-Trafficking Prevention Month

Highlighting Human-Trafficking Prevention Month”

On Thursday, the Capital Area Anti-trafficking Alliance (CAATA) hosted a National Community Human Trafficking Awareness Day Conference at the Capital Area District Library. Several Oakland County judges and representatives from the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office, Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and numerous local law enforcement departments and social service agencies will be in attendance to show their support of the ongoing and collaborative effort to fight human trafficking in Oakland County. The law aims to reduce human trafficking by appointing a representative at the U.S. Department of Transportation to organize human trafficking prevention efforts, among other measures.

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. Between 100,000 and 300,000 American children are at risk of being trafficked.

For example, Jenny, a survivor who was featured in the series debut Friday, said in her video, "It's a brainwashing that happens". People can also contact law enforcement directly at 1-888-347-2423.

This was the ninth annual such event but the first in which at least a partial spotlight was put on labor trafficking, often overlooked amid the emphasis on sex trafficking in the state. Another poster, "Girlfriend for Sale", focuses on how traffickers lure victims into false relationships and then coerce them into the sex trade.

The state also plans to establish regional hubs to help communities work through cases and raise awareness about human trafficking.

"There isn't just one stereotype of someone who is being trafficked or just one stereotype of a person who is doing the trafficking". The immigrant may not know that a crime is being committed against them, making it hard to report.

Attorney General Doug Peterson said police and prosecutors in 2018 will ramp up their use of tools provided by state lawmakers in recent years to combat human trafficking. "You need more eyes in the community". 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. He agreed and she checked into a local center providing services to victims.

Advocates at the human trafficking awareness observance ceremony want you to know this problem is likely happening in your town.

She says some of the red flags can include people who haven't received medical or dental care for many years and maybe severely underweight or malnourished.
