This month is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month and tonight, a local event is set to help people understand the extent of this problem. In Redmond, those who try to stop human slavery are presenting a crash course called "Human Trafficking 101".   Event organizer Nita Belles says people are often surprised that human trafficking is so widespread: “It's the “not my daughter; not in our backyard” kind of scenario. It's hard for people to believe it's really here; and the good news is: is that if we can become aware we can stop it." The biggest problem they see with human trafficking in Central Oregon is sex trade; especially connected with the Internet and runaways. Tonight's talk is at 6:30 pm at the Highland Baptist Church in Redmond.
