Increasing awareness of human trafficking in Northern Virginia - A 12-year-old Fairfax girl's story

It's hard to believe, but human trafficking (especially teen sex trafficking) is a significant problem in Northern Virginia.  January happens to be National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month so we decided to focus on this issue today, on National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.  We're joined by Kay Duffield, Executive Director of the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Initiative (NOVA HTI), a non-profit that is working to eradicate human trafficking in the local area.  We're also joined by Barbara Amaya, a survivor of human trafficking from age 12 through 21, who now works as a human rights advocate and is the author of the award winning book Nobody‚Äôs Girl, A Memoir of Lost Innocence, Modern Day Slavery and Transformation.  Barbara and Kay will share their stories with us and tell us how we can join them in working to eradicate this problem from our communities.
