Summit held today to raise awarness during Human Trafficking Prevention Month

Pinellas Park, FL - The first annual Human Trafficking Summit will be held at Banquet Masters in Pinellas Park this morning to discuss the state's strategic plan and challenges for overcoming human trafficking. The problem is so prominent that, in an effort to support the education of Americans about the forms of modern day slavery, President Obama has proclaimed January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

Human trafficking is the exploitation by force, fraud or coercion of vulnerable people, often immigrants, for forced labor, domestic servitude, or commercial sex operations. In the past five years, law enforcement and social service providers have identified multiple cases of human trafficking in the Tampa Bay Area. Florida is even one of the top destination states for women and children trafficked into the United States.
