It’s About Florida: Human Trafficking

Sep 27, 2012

The issue of child trafficking is in the spotlight this week as President Obama and Florida officials respond to growing concerns about underage sex workers and other minors being held against their will . More than 250 concerned state and community leaders and advocates attended the first Florida Children and Youth Cabinet Human Trafficking Summit to learn about trafficking in Florida, what the state is doing to prevent it and what people can do to help victims in their own communities.
