BEND, OR -- The Bend Chapter of Soroptimist International is hosting a presentation tonight about sex trafficking in Central Oregon. The Coordinator for the Commercially Sexually Exploited Children Response Team, Monica Desmond says it is a crime that is difficult to measure in our area. She says it tends to be a hidden crime with victims who are afraid or intimidated, and don’t come forward. She says if victims do come forward there are programs and resources in Central Oregon to help them. Tonight’s panel discussion on sex trafficking is at the Bend Senior Center from 6-to-8 p.m.
