Human Trafficking is one of the Awareness topics for January.
First off, you may be asking, why choose this topic? This does not happen here, it is something that happens in other countries or at the very least in big cities far from Mercer County, right? WRONG. Two of the five states in America with the highest reports for Human Trafficking border PA (Ohio & New York). Even closer than that, three hotspots for Human Trafficking are Pittsburgh, New Castle and Punxsutawney. This puts Mercer County smack dab in the middle of all of that.
