Human trafficking has long been a Kern County concern. The Hwy. 58 and Interstate 5 corridors, state officials emphasize, have long afforded fast and easy means for this illicit activity to flow from one end of the state to the other.

Not restricted to just prostitution, human trafficking includes domestic workers and seasonal farm workers perpetrated by unscrupulous labor contractors.

Child abduction oftentimes follows this same route. The informational rally on Aug. 22 was located at the intersection of Tucker Rd. and Valley Blvd. The focus was on missing and exploited children with over 40 sign-carrying members of local organizations helping to inform the public.
