PA: Right in our backyard: Human trafficking in Philadelphia
Philadelphia Sun – January 28, 2017
Enslavement of African Americans is rising in the City of Brotherly Love and Sister Affection. As many are gathering in front of large flat screen televisions during Super Bowl Sunday surrounded by trays of hors d’oeuvres, party platters and beer, an underground network will also be working hard. They will be trafficking women and young girls on major highways and airports, arranging for sexual rendezvous in Center City hotel rooms or unmarked vans on a tree-lined residential street. Why? Because this is the start of the prime season for human trafficking.
