Sex Trafficking Activist Speaks at SUNY Broome

Published:
According to the State Department there were 100,000 sex slaves in the US in 2011.

Activist Carol Metzker spoke at SUNY Broome today.

She said many people are surprised to find out this problem is happening in their own communities.

Metzker offered advice on how to spot victims of sex trafficking and
how you can help them. She said community education and advocacy is key.

"We can do so much whether it's doing a better job of protecting all children in a community who are isolated, understanding the importance of a meal for someone who is hungry, making sure that every child is literate and getting a good education so that there are options," she said.

Metzker said her life changed in 2004 when she went to India and met
an 11-year-old girl who was being trafficked.

She dedicated her career to sex trafficking education shortly thereafter.

Mezker will also be speaking at BU tonight at 6 p.m.
