Wyoming Takes New Steps to Raise Awareness About Human Trafficking


Around the world and even throughout all 50 states, human trafficking persists as an insidious evil that eats away at people’s lives. Recent years have led to heightened public attention towards this crisis; however, much more awareness remains very much necessary.

Thankfully, groups like Operation Underground Railroad and Slavery Free World continue playing major roles in raising attention. Then, efforts are occurring in Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Florida, and other states.

It’s vital for the general public to be as conscious of human trafficking (and how to fight human trafficking) as they are of other issues that repeatedly make mainstream news.

Thankfully, Wyoming is helping to lead this charge with new actions to increase the overall understanding of human trafficking.
