The Battle to End Human Trafficking

The Battle to End Human Trafficking

Date: March 16, 2023
Time: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Cost: Free to attend

Every year, millions of people are coerced, exploited and trafficked worldwide – the U.S. State Department estimates that 27.6 million people (about the population of Texas) are victims of human trafficking at any given time. The Mob Museum and Signs of Hope, a nonprofit offering services to those affected by sexual violence and exploitation, will host a panel discussion featuring women who have made a difference in the fight against human trafficking in Las Vegas. Hear from Jessica Kay as she shares her inspiring story of resilience and hope. Kay was forced to meet a quota of $2,500 a night as a sex trafficking victim. In 2007, she was arrested for solicitation of prostitution as part of a sting operation on the Las Vegas Strip. Her story of survival has championed change in the state Legislature and provided a path forward for other survivors.

From 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. several local organizations will provide free community resources on the second floor of the Museum. The panel discussion will begin at 7 p.m. in the courtroom. 

Organizations include:

  • The US Attorney’s Office and the FBI
  • The Shade Tree
  • All Things Possible
  • Signs of Hope
  • Southern Nevada Human Trafficking Task Force
  • Shero Foundation
