Human trafficking event scheduled in Lexington

A survivor of human trafficking from the 1980’s will speak in Lexington April 16th as part of a human trafficking education event at the Lexington Village Theater. Beat the Streets will also attend and bring together music and speakers to share its message about human trafficking. Erik Wurmlinger, Croswell police officer and Cros-Lex Community Schools liaison officer, organized the event, saying he hopes to reach a broader audience than other human trafficking education events he’s attended. The evening will include information on the warning signs of trafficking as Wurlmlinger says he looks for behavior like shyness in the school atmosphere, problems within the home or suspicious social media activity. Human trafficking today can often start online, according to Wurmlinger.
