Documentary discusses human trafficking in Tri-Cities

RICHLAND - Action News continues to track the efforts to combat local human trafficking. PBS is airing a documentary about the underground crime in the Tri-Cities.

The feature will air this Wednesday. Saturday, over 100 participated in an awareness walk. Proceeds go to the Tri-Cities Sir Optimist Against Trafficking.

Organizers say they've worked with several victims from the Tri-Cities. Just this summer, we reported a case of human trafficking in Kennewick. A 19-year-old is accused of getting a teen girl to have sex for pay.
