Tackling Human Trafficking

Becky Rasmussen, executive director for the Call to Freedom organization, speaks to a Yankton audience about human trafficking in the region and a new resource coming to Yankton next week. The public also needs to realize that the targeted person doesn’t choose that situation. “Nobody wakes up and says, ‘I want to be a trafficking victim.’ It’s the grooming and the recruitment process,” she said.
