Acton’s Communication’s Specialist, Elise Hilton, recently penned an op-ed for the Detroit News on human trafficking. She argues that not only is it bigger than people realize, but it’s happening in Acton’s home, Michigan.
The facts are grim:
■Michigan’s proximity to the Canadian border and waterways increases the likelihood of trafficking in our state.
■Michigan truck stops and hotels are used for sex trafficking.
■Major events such as ArtPrize and the North American International Auto Show are also major draws for sex trafficking in Michigan.
■Michigan agriculture, manufacturing and construction businesses attract labor trafficking.
