Sex Trafficking in Hawaii – On the Streets and Behind the Headlines

The other day I posted a video that Malia Zimmerman of the Hawaii Reporter posted entitled “Jana’s Story: Life as an Underage Sex Trafficking Victim in Honolulu”.

KHON2 News just reported on Emergency responders train to help sex trafficking victims.

Tonight I will post Matt Levi’s special on “Sex Trafficking in Hawaii” that was just posted a few months ago:
