BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - After Louisiana received a more than $1 million grant to help child victims of human trafficking, a discussion on how to fight the problem took place at the Governor’s Mansion.
In January, Louisiana received a $1.2 million grant to assist child victims of human trafficking.
This was part of an anti-human trafficking summit. A group talked about some of the strategies being used in the battle against these crimes.
“To end such a horrible and prolific crime is gonna’ take all of us working together in a very sustained effort,” Governor John Bel Edwards said at the summit Wednesday, Sept. 25.
This was actually the first anti-human trafficking summit to be held in Louisiana.
