Human Trafficking

The Coalition on Human Trafficking is working to train hotel and motel employees to recognize the signs of sex trafficking.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska officials will target potential sex traffickers this year with more proactive law enforcement and an ad campaign at rest stops and other places where trafficking takes place.

Approximately 90 hotels in and around the metro area have received training from the Coalition on Human Trafficking.

Next Tuesday, the UNO Schwalb Center will present a Passover lecture by Dr. Jane Gordon in conjunction with the photography exhibit “Enslaved: A Visual Story of Modern Day Slavery,” by humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine.  

Two leaders in the fight against human trafficking will speak at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) on Monday, July 18. The lecture is set for 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Mammel Hall (6708 Pine Street). A pre-event reception will begin at 5:30 p.m.
