Katy area citizens over the age of 18 are invited to join Crime Stoppers of Houston for a free presentation that will shed light on the victims of human trafficking, profile traffickers, and explain how to report and prevent abuse.
According to DoSomething.Org, the average age of children who enter the sex trade are between 12 and 14 years old.
"Human trafficking is a reality that many people come face to face with every day, in fact there are an estimated 313,000 human trafficking victims in Texas alone. Education and awareness are paramount to protecting yourself and your families. We hope many parents across the city will join us on April 25 as we shine a light on the second largest criminal industry that is strategically targeting young people. Exploiters can be anyone and they have various methods of recruitment and control tactics,” says Crime Stoppers of Houston Marketing Director, Tania Cruz.
The free presentation is 45-minutes long and will bring human trafficking out of the shadows, educate the public, and prevent children and families from being victimized in the future.
Wednesday, April 25 from 7 - 8 p.m.
1830 Katyland Dr., Katy, TX 77493
