MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - This weekend sex trafficking is a major topic of discussion in Moultrie, where advocates are working to stop it and prevent it.
Colquitt County was linked to an interstate prostitution ring back in 2015.
Love Endures Ministries partnered with Georgia Cares to host a Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Community Training Saturday.
The training gave tips on how to properly report and identify victims of human trafficking.
One organizer says even though sex trafficking crimes may not be reported, that doesn't mean it's not happening.
"The worst thing that we can do as a community for these people, for these victims, is nothing. And that's what the traffickers want, they want you to do nothing. As long as we do nothing, the demand will always be there, as long as the demand is there, there will always be sex trafficking," said Joe Amore.
Saturday, people there learned of the interventions and services available to victims in Georgia, along with how to understand trauma, abuse, and victimization.
Organizers said they hope to host more events like this in the future.
