Human Trafficking Awareness Day was Jan. 11
Texas ranks second in the nation in reports of human trafficking and an estimated 300,000 victims entered the state in 2016 according to statistics from the National Human Trafficking Hotline and The Statewide Human Trafficking Mapping Project of Texas.
One Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agent is doing something to help reduce those numbers.
Nancy Treviño, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension urban youth development agent in Lubbock, has co-developed a system to help identify and assist victims of human trafficking.
Through the application of science-based knowledge, AgriLife Extension creates high-quality, relevant continuing education that encourages lasting and effective change.
