The U.S. Institute Against Human Trafficking has spent time gathering information from businesses, churches, government groups, and private citizens on the best methods of reducing trafficking.

The concept that developed is establishing trafficking-free zones in each community.

Geoff Rogers, who leads the institute, tells OneNewsNow that almost anyone and any group can form the zones and act.

“Engaging with the local community government. Engaging with law enforcement. Engaging with businesses and churches, and the education system, health care organizations," he says, "all using then advanced technology to fight the demand."

Rogers says the key is to recognize the supply vs demand concept behind sex trafficking.

“The reason we have sex trafficking in America is because of the demand for purchased sex,” he says, “and so it's really [up] to us. Sex trafficking's a supply answer to a demand problem.”

The public can obtain additional information at traffickingfreezone.com and learn how to establish the zones in their communities.
