From The Seven Lakes Insider, April 4, 2018:
The following article was written and submitted by Kim Nixon.
Human Trafficking is a global epidemic. Polaris Project in Washington D.C. hosts the national Human Trafficking hotline. Based on the amount of calls received, North Carolina consistently ranks in the top ten states for human trafficking.
Kym Nixon learned how common human trafficking was while living near the Great Lakes. Her eldest daughter, Brooke, is a survivor of human trafficking.
Kym admits that learning her daughter had been trafficked blindsided her.
“I didn’t think this was something that could happen to us,” she said.
