Human Trafficking In Charlotte
The size and scope of the human trafficking industry is staggering: it is a $32 billion per year industry. In Charlotte right now, there are more than five open cases of suspected trafficking. These people are living as slaves, right now – in our backyard. Recently, a local TV and radio host just barely escaped being trafficked in Russia. We are joined by her and others working in our community to fight human trafficking.
