Even in a pandemic, human trafficking continues to flourish in the United States and Cincinnati. This Friday, professionals and concerned and curious citizens are invited to attend the 14th Annual Conference to Combat Human Trafficking in Greater Cincinnati. The presentations and curricula hosted by the Salvation Army are designed to help teachers, parents, first responders, lawyers, and medical professionals. The Salvation Army reports that it has received nearly 3,500 calls annually to report on human trafficking, both labor and sex clams. TSA estimates that human trafficking cases are increasing due to the pandemic. These topics will be discussed at the conference. “The vulnerabilities have increased,” said Erin Meye, TSA program manager to combat human trafficking. “In situations with high unemployment, domestic violence or child abuse increases. Children who do not go to school are not identified as often as such places for public relations work are not as common.” This year’s conference is entirely virtual and costs $ 15 per person. You can register here. The conference lasts from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. To report on human trafficking, click here.
