Striking Yoga Poses For A Point

We like to think we're long past the days when people were forced into slavery or prostitution.  But the stories of people who have been victims of human trafficking reveal how contemporary a problem it is. 

Shine A Light plans to raise awareness and money in its annual yoga fundraiser, January 27th in Ashland.  Celina Reppond runs the program, while Staysha Hackmann spoke last year and coordinates the Jackson County Sex Trafficking Task Force at Community Works.  

They join us to talk about the event and its cause, along with Susan Moen from the Jackson County Sexual Assault Response Team, SART.

Mentioned in the discussion: the National Human Trafficking Hotline, 888-373-7888.
