It’s a widespread problem that hits most communities: human trafficking. This month several events are planned throughout Central Oregon to raise awareness.  Nita Belles with Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans, or OATH, says Portland has received national attention for having a lot of sex trafficking victims. She says it's because the City has such a high number of "adult entertainment" businesses and it's location on the I-5 corridor. "They have what's called the circuit; which means they keep those girls on the move. That is a way for the pimp or the trafficker to keep the girl under control. She doesn't know where she is when a young girl is rescued. One of the first things she's going to ask is 'where am I' she may not even know what city she's in. If she knows what city she's in she doesn't know exactly where she is." Besides sex trafficking, Belles says they see problems with slave-like victims who work at restaurants and in domestic jobs such as live-in nannies and house cleaners. Belles was a guest on KBND’s “Your Town” Thursday.
