Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Nebraska launches effort to clamp down on human trafficking

Beshear began the awareness day by participating in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Free2Hope's new Drop-in Center.

Fedor says the Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force has engaged nearly every aspect of government on the issue to ensure victims and survivors receive support and that offenders are brought to justice. However the experts say that Human Trafficking victims can be of any age, race, gender, nationality, and come from any socio-economic group.

In Cheyenne the human trafficking force sees the main activity along the I-25 corridor. "I appreciate the leadership and support of the Attorney General's Office in this and all that we do across the state and country to help those touched by this bad crime".

Col. Bolduc added, "Troppers across Nebraska are proud to partner with the Attorney General's office and other in this important mission sex trafficking is not a comfortable topic for the public to discuss, but that's this campaign is so critical". More often than not, the victims are not easily identifiable. Human traffickers prey on their victims by promising a life of hope and greater opportunity, while delivering only enslavement. This debt increases each day - making it impossible to pay off. They may appear hungry or malnourished and have poor eye contact. They may have few or no personal possessions, no money or personal identification. The state is also working with shopping malls, bus companies and truckers to help identify signs of trafficking. NCMEC reports that children who are particularly vulnerable include those who have a history of sexual abuse, have a tendency to run away, have limited education, have a gender bias, have experienced sexual orientation discrimination or live in poverty. It concludes with a caption that reads: "You're not anonymous".

To report suspected human trafficking call the toll free hotline number 1-888-3737-888 or Text "Help" or "Info" to BeFree (233733). "If you see something, say something".

Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Human trafficking is the fastest growing and second largest criminal enterprise in the world.

State Rep. John McCravy, R-Greenwood and a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said he supports South Carolina's aggressive pursuit to eradicate human trafficking.

Much of the traffic is generated on social media, on which pimps post fake profiles, luring in mostly young people who are lost and wandering.

In fact, the Human Trafficking Task Force has launched a new website, StopHumanTraffickingWV.org, with resources and information.
