Human Trafficking Legislative Day

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A bi-partisan group of Michigan women senators is inviting residents to the Capitol to learn about the problem of human trafficking.

The Human Trafficking Legislative Day will be held May 2. Democratic Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer of East Lansing will be joined by Republican Judy Emmons of Sheridan and Tonya Schuitmaker of Lawton and Democrat Rebekah Warren of Ann Arbor.

The event will include a panel discussion with lawmakers and a viewing of "Very Young Girls," a documentary on human trafficking.

Emmons says in a statement that it's estimated that about 150 women in Michigan under the age of 18 are sold into sex trafficking every month.
