And a meeting Tuesday night tried to draw attention to it -- in an attempt to stop it.

 

Central Oregon Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans held the meeting at the Bend Community Center.

 

One of the panelists was a sex trafficking survivor and case manager at a facility that fights it in Phoenix.  Her name is Rozlind Saumalu.

 

"My message is talking to everyone about my experience and how it happened in hopes that I can bring more awareness and possibly touch someone who is currently being trafficked and hears me speak."
 

 

Saumalu was first trafficked when she was only three and it continued until she was in her mid 20's.  But now she works at a Phoenix facility that helps rescue girls ages 11 to 17 who are victims of sex trafficking.
