HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS HERE
Frequently, when I speak or write about human trafficking, a typical comment is, "Well, it doesn't happen here." Unfortunately, Michigan is the "here" where human trafficking occurs and the facts are grim.
Michigan's proximity to the Canadian border and waterways increases the likelihood of human trafficking in our state. Michigan truck stops and hotels are used for sex trafficking. Major events such as Art Prize and the North American International Auto Show are also major draws for sex trafficking in Michigan. Michigan agriculture, manufacturing and construction businesses attract labor trafficking.
