Two new laws to help combat human trafficking

She explained, "Valley Crisis Center supports both labor and sex trafficking prevention. Those are target populations that traffickers look for when they want to exploit someone".

Each month in Nebraska, 900 people are sold for sex, often a couple of times, according to a report by the Human Trafficking Initiative, a project of the Women's Fund.

If you suspect that someone is a victim, Davis said don't hesitate to call the authorities and let them know.

Who are these victims of human trafficking?

$18,000The amount raised by the Pledge to Stop Human Trafficking event as of noon Thursday.

January is Human Trafficking Awareness month so this forum fits in appropriately. But Dickey says many people wrongly assume that victims of human trafficking are foreigners or illegal immigrants, when in fact many Americans, including men, women, and children are victimized.

"We need to make the public aware on how traffickers operate", District Attorney Summer Stephan said. In 2016, the Polaris Project identified 8,042 cases of human trafficking, a 35 percent jump over 2015.

Frequent visits to truck stops or weigh stations can provide clues that may otherwise be missed by law enforcement.

Every year, an unknown number of foreign guest workers in South Florida and the rest of the nation disappear into the worlds of sexual slavery and domestic servitude. The film chronicles two survivors of human trafficking. "It can feel as if his or her entire world has been turned upside down, and - much too often - it can leave wounds that are unseen and which sometimes never truly or fully heal", said Hogan.

But Dickey says the quickest way for victims to get help is generally by reporting to a local hospital emergency room.

She says this first of a kind house is needed in Buffalo. "In addition, our culture in Appalachia causes us to be more isolated", said President and CEO of Crittenton Services Kathy Szafran. "MI has the 11th highest call volume to the National Human Trafficking Hotline". They are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to take your call.

Perpetrators must be arrested and prosecuted, the demand for trafficking victims must be reduced, children must learn internet safety, the general public must become aware of the crime, and drug addiction rates must fall, he said.

"I immediately realized I was under someone's control and I couldn't get out", she said.
