Thursday marks Human Trafficking Awareness Day, a moment where we raise awareness for the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world. One Republican representative from Illinois is using the day to reveal the strides he is taking to combat the sinister crime.
Adam Kinzinger, a U.S. representative for Illinois’ 16th congressional district, published a blog on Tuesday detailing his plans to combat human trafficking, a rampant problem in the state.
In October, I hosted a community forum on human trafficking with local leaders who deal with the issue from the front lines. We were fortunate to have representatives from The Salvation Army, Department of Homeland Security, Demand Abolition, Rockford Diocese & Catholic Charities, Rockford Police Department, Cook County Sheriff’s Office, and Rockford Rescue Mission; and we were joined by nearly 200 concerned citizens. The forum focused on the issues we face in the Rockford area, but also how the problem is being handled and reported on a national scale. One of my big takeaways was community awareness – people seemed shocked to know the number of cases, the wide range of victims, and the impact this issue has on our community.
