Essential Estrogen: Iowans to gain greater understanding of human trafficking

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Iowa's two U.S. Attorneys kicked off a new effort this afternoon that
is aimed at raising public awareness of human trafficking. "Human
trafficking -- the use of force, fraud or coercion to compel the labor
or services of another person -- is a terrible crime," said Matt M.
Dumermuth, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Iowa. "The
criminals prey on some of the most vulnerable members of our society.
They often target children and foreign nationals, including illegal
immigrants, who think they have no place to turn for help." Dummermuth
stood with Matt G. Whitaker, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District
of Iowa, to announce a plan that will impact Johnson, Linn, Black Hawk
and Dubuque counties.
