Human trafficking is a global multi-million dollar business and is currently taking place right here in Erie. The Pennsylvania State Police raided a massage parlor in Milcreek; a Florida business owner was arrested for operating a human trafficking ring under the guise of massage parlors in Pennsylvania. We spoke to human trafficking activists Betsy Weist, Social Justice Coordinator for the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Northwestern PA and Patricia Bellingham, President of the Synodical Women's Organization of Northwestern PA about how important it is to spread awareness for this issue. 


If you or someone you know is a victim of human trafficking, please call the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
