News: Human Trafficking, Here in Birmingham
That Birmigham, Alabama has a major problem with human trafficking may come as a surprise to many citizens. Not to law enforcement, social service providers, or even legislators. Human trafficking, where vulnerable women and children are manipulated, threatened, dominated and abused into selling or trading sex to simply survive, thrives along interstate highways across our country. Where the highways intersect with cities the traffickers find a ready market to sell or trade their 'property'. For Birmingham, and cities from Los Angeles to Atlanta, I-20 is the pipeline that brings this thriving, insidious, sex industry to town. You can help. If you have information indicating human trafficking is occurring you can call your local police or you can call Crime Stoppers. You will remain anonymous and if your information leads to person(s) being prosecuted for the crime of human trafficking you will be eligible for a cash reward.
