Human trafficking has been a hot topic in Charlotte recently, but it's certainly not a new phenomenon. Just ask U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins:
"We've had human trafficking in the city of Charlotte for decades. What we haven't done is recognized it. What we haven't done is mobilized to do something about it."
There are now a handful of local groups doing something about it. One group, Market Your Mind Not Your Body, is trying to fight human trafficking with a group home in east Charlotte. The group focuses on helping sex workers leave their pimps.
