Highlighting Human-Trafficking Prevention Month

Highlighting Human-Trafficking Prevention Month

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month and the Oakland County Human Trafficking Task Force (HTTF) is continuing its efforts to combat this serious issue in Oakland County.

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.

"While ATA continues to work on major issues like tax reform, infrastructure and trade, it is important that we secure victories in other areas to continue to advance trucking's agenda", ATA president and CEO Chris Spear said in a news release.

Most folks will likely assume the majority of human trafficking occurs in Third World countries, and that is a reasonable assumption.

The hour-and-half long seminar presented by Culkin focused on ways to help victims of sex trafficking return to a normal productive life by helping them to clear their criminal records and to promote advocacy with other agencies such as mental health providers, health care providers and employment resource centers.

The authors are all Oakland County commissioners and serve on the Oakland County Human Trafficking Task Force.

Sen. Jim Sheer of Norfolk told his story of how he got on board to spearhead the problem of human trafficking here in Nebraska, "I was about ready to tell them I'm sorry I'm just not knowledgeable enough it's not really in my wheelhouse and I looked over because I have twin granddaughters that were born 2 months before that".

Modern slavery is here - in our community and in our state - in the form of forced labor and commercial sex. Trafficking of persons involves the recruitment or transfer of people by the means of force, fraud, or coercion for the objective of exploitation including forced labor, domestic servitude, removal of organs, and commercial sexual exploitation.

The state's plan to end human trafficking also includes working closely with the hospitality industry, because hotel and motel rooms are often the venues for crimes.

Although South Carolina didn't see its first human trafficking-related conviction until 2015, officials have been building a framework since 2012 to tackle the problem.

"Online dating has become very prominent", Clark said. "We at PennDOT are doing our part to help spot victims and get them assistance".

With the new laws on the books, the state hopes to educate Nebraskans and its visitors about the tougher approach, Peterson said. She described South Florida as a trafficking "hotspot." "They provided all the food he wanted".

Globally, an estimated 20.9 million people are trafficked, 18.7 million of which are connected to labor, according to International Labour Organization statistics. This crime is often times hidden, as victims rarely come forward to seek help for various reasons including language barriers, fear of traffickers, and fear of law enforcement.
