Indiana is making a greater effort to end modern day slavery.

As of June of this year, Indiana had 27 cases regarding human slavery reported, so the state is increasing its efforts to raise awareness.  At Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Indiana, representatives from the Attorney General’s office met with faculty, students, and staff to explore ways that one of the world’s greatest criminal enterprise can be disrupted.  Today’s traffickers are estimated to have built a $150 billion business at the cost of more than 2o million victims.  The question is…How can Indiana fight back?  The Indiana Protection for Abused and Trafficked Humans (IPATH) has filed indictments against perpetrators and is working together with local and state law enforcement, the FBI, and the Department of Labor to make even greater headway.

Hoosiers need to understand that slavery is not just happening in other countries.  It is right here in America and every state is affected.
