Members of the Mid-Michigan Human Trafficking Task Force host events

On Thursday, the Capital Area Anti-trafficking Alliance (CAATA) hosted a National Community Human Trafficking Awareness Day Conference at the Capital Area District Library.

Part of the problem with understanding the prevalence of human trafficking is because local law enforcement is just beginning to know how to recognize it.

"This is something that when I was first elected in 2010 and took office in 2011, I did not realize - and I don't think many people did - that human trafficking was a problem (in the state)", he said. Between 100,000 and 300,000 American children are at risk of being trafficked. She said, "I don't have the age of the stats, but victims in the Central Valley can be as young as 5 years old, and all the way to 70". These possible indicators might include lack of knowledge of what city they are in; appearing anxious, depressed, submissive, tense or nervous especially if suggested to contact law enforcement for assistance. Human trafficking is an estimated $150 billion industry worldwide, with commercial sex generating two-thirds of the profit.

The La Crosse Task Force to End Modern Slavery, founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, is co-sponsoring an online video series titled "The Faces of Human Trafficking".

After 180 cases in Indiana during 2016 and with January being "Human Trafficking Awareness Month", the Indiana Youth Institute is ramping up efforts to educate the public on the signs of human trafficking. We do have a drug and opioid issue, and we are surrounded borders and we also have a lot of refugees here. "This doesn't make who we are", she said. She said these victims become a product for the trafficker.

"Most of what I see is familial trafficking", he said, "which is where the parents tend to prostitute their children out".

Dickey says that while few people are seen in the CRMC emergency room who immediately report themselves as victims of human trafficking, it isn't unusual for doctors or nurses there to discover people visiting the emergency room are in fact trafficking victims.

Suspected human trafficking activities can be reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 888-373-7888 or the U.S. Department of Homeland Security at 866-347-2423. She said it is usually somebody very close to the victim who has the power to control their world.
