Human trafficking subject of library program
The Times


CICERO - The Friends of the Library invites the public to attend a program "Human Trafficking in Hamilton County - What Everyone Should Know," 6:30 p.m. Oct. 10, at the Hamilton North Public Library, 209 W. Britton Street, Cicero.

Tim Swarens, IndyStar opinion editor, will host this timely topic. Swarens, through a grant from the Society of Professional Journalists, has spent the past year investigating child sex trafficking in the United States and around the world. His work has taken him to eight countries on five continents since October 2016 to better understand why an estimated 1.2 million children a year fall victim to sex trafficking.

According to a U.S. Department of Justice funded study in 2016 sex traffickers sell about 10,000 children a year in the United States. The average age of American victims is 15. Each one is purchased on average 5.4 times a day. Last year, authorities identified nine child trafficking victims in Hamilton County; the youngest victim was 11 years old.

If you think this issue isn't happening in your neighborhood, this informative and eye-opening program may make you think twice about this growing problem, learn the factors that fuel the child sex trade and what you can do to help stop it.
