Human Trafficking in Conn. in Spotlight Following Robert Kraft Arrest

Love146’s US Programs Director Erin Williamson is interviewed by WTNH News 8 following the charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for soliciting prostitution. Watching a wealthy, politically connected figure like Kraft be arrested makes a big statement, she said, “sends a very powerful message and that ripples.”

According to Williamson, human trafficking touches cities and towns across the nation, including here in Connecticut. “Every year the number of referrals that we receive has increased year over year,” she explained.  The scourge of sex work also impacts all socioeconomic, races and genders. Said Williamson, “If you think this is not happening in your community and in your backyard, I’m here to tell you that it is.”
