Junior League of San Diego’s seventh annual Human Trafficking Awareness Rally

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) –  The FBI names San Diego as one of the 13 areas with the highest rates of child sex trafficking in the nation, and children who are homeless or in the foster care system are especially vulnerable.

Each year, the crime of human trafficking violates the human rights of approximately 5,000 local adults and children and costs the San Diego economy $800 million dollars.

The Junior League of San Diego is holding its seventh annual Human Trafficking Awareness Rally in response to this massive issue.

Emily Green Lake, President of Junior League of San Diego, and  Ilo Neukam, Executive Vice President-Elect of Junior League of San Diego, were in studio to tell us more about it.

Saturday, January 25
1:00pm – 3:00pm
