Human Trafficking Pilot Program

Partnerships between agencies and organizations in a community are essential to effectively raising awareness and combating the issue of human trafficking here in Yankton and across the state.

Call To Freedom Executive Director Becky Rasmussen says Yankton has been selected as one of four pilot communities to develop programs to address human trafficking that can be used in other locations in the future.

Rasmussen says the River City Domestic Violence Center welcomed the opportunity to participate.

Rasmussen is presenting on the issue of human trafficking at next Friday’s Spark: Conversation For Community event set for 830 AM at the Avera Office Pavilion.
