The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast held an open discussion today to talk about how human trafficking impacts the Gulf Coast. The goal of the presentation was to talk about the sex trade and how the victims are targeted, even in the United States. College officials say the growing awareness of the crimes is beginning to make a difference. Dr. Kimberly Scherlofsky, an Admissions Counselor, says, "What I can say about what I'm pleased about is the growing awareness and people are realizing that it’s not only about the sex trade, but also forced labor and all these different elements are coming to light and we are understanding what human trafficking is really about." If you have any questions, or need help on this difficult topic, you can go to www.advocates.org for more information.
