LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — In recognition of National Human Trafficking Awareness Month, Erin Kauffman, program coordinator of SEEDS of Hope, will appear in-person to discuss recent efforts to combat human trafficking in Las Vegas.

A Justice Department study identified Las Vegas as one of 17 U.S. cities most likely to be a destination for human trafficking victims. SEEDS, which stands for Saving, Empowering, Educating and Restoring Dreams, is part of the Salvation Army.

Each month, The Mob Museum partners with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and other local agencies to host Community Safety Forums – free public programs focused on pertinent issues affecting Southern Nevada.

Pre-registered guests are given free admission to the Museum following the event.

The Mob Museum will also provide a livestream and recording of this presentation on its website.

The event will be on Jan. 10 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m at The Mob Museum – In the Historic Courtroom on the second floor.
