Augustana Thought Leader Forum
Human trafficking happens in South Dakota. In fact the Rushmore State ranked 6th in the nation for human trafficking. Find out more at the Augustana College Thought Leader Forum.
When Hannah Miller, class of 2012, decided to examine the growing issue of human trafficking in South Dakota, she decided to look at the issue first-hand. So, she dressed up as a biker girl and conducted undercover research during the state’s famed Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
“South Dakota is among the top six worst states for human trafficking. From Sturgis, to the hunting season, to the Native American Reservations, people are preying on the vulnerable. Men and women are trafficked here to work in hotels, bars and other establishments,” Miller said.
Miller will discuss her findings at the Augustana Thought Leader Forum, “The Dirty Little Secret: Human Trafficking in South Dakota” at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, April 12, at CJ Callaway’s.”
