There are many misconceptions about Human Trafficking. A common one is that it has to involve transporting, says Alicia Kinsman of the International Institute of Connecticut. Another misconception people have is that it always takes place somewhere else; No one ever thinks it’s happening in their own communities.

To raise awareness and educate people, the International Institute of Connecticut joined Congressman Jim Himes and other organizations Monday to hold a panel discussion on this problem. The statewide non-profit has been in existence for nearly 100 years, working with vulnerable immigrants and refugees. The Institute had been funded since 2006 to help foreign-born victims of trafficking. In 2012, this was expanded to U.S. Citizens.

Other panelists Monday included representatives from Save the Children, the Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Attorney’s office. To find out more about Human Trafficking, visit www.dhs.gov/humantrafficking
