New England agency targets growing number of sex trafficking cases

A New England agency is targeting the growing number of sex trafficking cases by raising awareness and providing resources to people potentially impacted.

Love146 is an agency in New England that seeks to educate teachers and parents on the signs of human trafficking. …

“There are whole chatrooms where buyers are communicating about the best websites, what the language on these websites are,” said Erin Williamson of Love146.

Williamson said in many cases, young women are recruited online in subtle ways. The women become caught in a trap … they cannot escape.

“Sometimes youth will be sent to a buyer’s place of residency, to a hotel where a buyer is staying at, to a place of work, so we’re seeing it happen in many different ways,” said Williamson.
