Local groups are kicking off a campaign to fight human trafficking.

“As many as 17,000 children and woman are brought into the United States each year against their will where they are beaten drugged and rapped into submission,” said Bob Sandborn with Children at Risk. “Here in Houston, cities like Houston — then sent around the country.”
The new campaign includes billboards with help lines for victims of human trafficking.
Activists are also working to educate the public about the problem as part of Human Trafficking Awareness week.
