George Belitzos, the Chair of the Iowa Network Against Human Trafficking and Slavery, asks you to come out for a public forum and discussion on human trafficking. The Ames City Council will host the discussion in the City Council chambers on April 16 from 6-7 PM. Everyone is invited to come and participate or just listen. Mr. Belitzos explains on Local Talk that Ames is the only major town or city in Central Iowa that has not adopted an ordinance against human trafficking and thus attracts the traffickers that have had to leave communities with ordinances. Mr. Belitzos explains the nature of trafficking and its growth and seriousness as a problem.
