Cases of human trafficking have been identified in all 72 counties in Wisconsin. Yet most people doubt this, thinking "that can't be happening here!" If we were in a state of denial, who is helping survivors? Who is working on policies? Who is educating young people about risks? In this talk, Rachel Monaco-Wilcox, JD, will address the myths and misconceptions around sex trafficking in Wisconsin, iluminate the situation and explay what led her to start to LOTUS (legal Options for Trafficked and Underserved Survivors) legal clinic in 2013. She will share ideas for how citizens can make a difference.
