Human trafficking is a problem that is right here in our backyard. Libby White and Jennifer Simek with the Junior League of Lubbock joined Tom and Laura to discuss human trafficking and how Lubbockites can better educate themselves on this topic.

"Texas is the second largest state for human trafficking, California being the first," said White. And human trafficking is the second largest illegal illicit activity there is behind drugs.

The Junior League of Lubbock will be hosting a community movie night on Thursday, February 26 to better educate the community on human trafficking. The event will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Junior League headquarters and is open to the public ages 13 and up featuring the movies Chosen and Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking minus the graphic scenes.
