The event was held 4 p.m. Monday afternoon in the Shepler Ballroom.
Representatives from The Red Cord discussed the human trafficking problem in Oklahoma – and let attendees know the signs and indicators of sex trafficking.
The university’s Department of Social Sciences and the Criminal Justice Association organized the event in line with Cameron’s current academic festival, “American Identities in the 21st Century.”
CJA adviser Rick Lowe said presentations like Monday’s bring attention to a serious crime that's closer to home than some may think.
"One of the identities we have as Americans is freedom, and there are people in our society who don't enjoy that freedom,” he said, “And recognizing that human trafficking isn't just something that happens around the world or in other countries, but also happens domestically in the United States, even in Oklahoma.”
