KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A group fighting human trafficking is calling for backup, and people living in the Kansas City metro can be part of the solution.

Jackson County leaders tweeted information about a plan to host a Citizen’s Academy through the Human Trafficking Training Center.

The event is scheduled for March 4 at the Diamond Club inside Kauffman Stadium.

The Human Trafficking Training Center warns the problem is a multi-billion dollar global industry.

During the citizens academy, trainers say participants will learn about the signs of human trafficking, what to do if you think you’ve witnessed a human trafficking victim, what law enforcement is doing to fight the issue, and how you can get involved.
