Human trafficking survivor to tell her story in Auburn

The Associated Press

AUBURN, Maine — A human trafficking survivor will be the featured speaker at a conference on the topic in Auburn.

Minh Dang will tell her personal story at Friday’s conference, which is titled “Not Here.” The conference will include areas of interest for Maine law enforcement, health care professionals, social service agencies, faith-based organizations and community members.

Maine is among the majority of states that outlaw human trafficking, the forced transfer of people for prostitution, factory work and other forms of forced labor. Maine’s law allows victims to sue for damages.

Thomas Delahanty, the U.S. attorney for Maine, will open the conference. Representatives of the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement will also address the conference.

The event will be followed by a community rally and concert on Saturday.
