Groups, social service agencies and police are initiating plans to fight human trafficking in Nebraska…
A Crisis Center director told a Judiciary Committee, “A 12-year-old girl that we located in Grand Island was averaging six to 10 commercial sex acts per day.” Many are forced into work at big State fairs and sports events. Most who testified said that services for victims are rarely available–shelter, intervention, legal help, food, clothing. “What we’re seeing is that we are identifying it, But without a coordinated response throughout the state that includes law enforcement, that includes services providers, especially in our rural communities, we are not able to effectively respond. Even if we identify it, and that’s really troublesome because a good portion of our victims were turned back to prostitution and to their pimps or to their bad relationship where they’re pimping them out, simply because we have nothing better to offer them.”
Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.
