A three-day conference is coming to Billings to raise awareness of human trafficking in modern-day America.  Fight Human Trafficking will be held May 22 to 24 at Montana State University Billings.  Sponsored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and numerous other law enforcement, nonprofit and educational groups, the forum will offer public sessions along with separate, specialized training sessions for law enforcement personnel.

Sex trafficking is the most prevalent, where minors and some adults are taken across state lines and forced into providing sex or labor, and it’s occurring in Montana’s urban and rural communities, according to the FBI.  The Gazette reports it’s called modern day slavery.  At Super Bowl 51 in February, sting operations led to the arrests of more than 700 sex buyers and 20 traffickers or pimps, involving 30 law enforcement agencies across 15 states.
