UNL students make efforts to decrease sex trafficking in Nebraska

The Coalition on Human Trafficking is a non-profit organization that’s initiative is to address the epidemic of human trafficking, specifically sex trafficking, in the Omaha and Lincoln areas, and several students and faculty members of the university have recently joined to help confront the issue.

The informational pamphlet distributed by the coalition displays data gathered through several studies performed by Creighton University. According to their research, roughly 100,000 kids are at risk of being forced into some form of sex trafficking every year in the United States. Local anti-trafficking task forces note that over 100 cases of child sex trafficking have been reported in the Omaha area alone and suggest this number is much lower than the likely amount of cases that go undiscovered or unreported.
