Sex Trafficking Education Packets

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA - A local nonprofit is helping business owners understand what they're required to do to help stop sex trafficking.

The law requires businesses like hotels and bars post signs with information about human trafficking in order to make customers and workers aware of the problem.

It's been in effect since the middle of last year, but several businesses still don't have them, so volunteers from the group "I'm Aware," are delivering packets of information to those business owners.

Elizabeth Smith is the founder of "I'm Aware."

"We are definitely trying to hit these businesses before Masters Week, cause these are the industries that are more likely to see trafficking which we know there's an influx of that that comes in during Masters Week. "

The hope is that victims will see the signs and call for help.
