Billboard targets human trafficking


A new outlet to increase awareness of the tragedy of Human Trafficking in King County was unveiled this week on a billboard along the East Valley Highway in Kent.

The ad space, donated by Clear Channel Outdoors, will advertise a national hotline and messaging aimed at reaching out to victims, potential victims and the public about where to turn for help.

The ads encourage people to call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline at 1-888-3737-888 if they suspect someone may be a victim of human trafficking or if they are victims themselves.
