January set for human trafficking and stalking awareness

by Krystal Paco

Guam - The Blue House Lounge case is an example that human trafficking is alive even in the modern world. To bring more awareness to the issue as well as stalking, the month of January has been designated Human Trafficking and Stalking Awareness Month.

U.S. Attorney for Guam and the CNMI Alicia Limtiaco said, "As we move forward in 2014, we commit ourselves to continue to work together to ensure we're doing everything possible to protect our victims and families and to be sure we take whatever steps are necessary to make Guam, our entire Pacific region safe and truly a community where we look out for each other."

Human trafficking workshops and outreaches are scheduled throughout the month as well as a candelight vigil in the villages on January 22nd.
