CHAMPAIGN -- People in Central Illinois are addressing a tough topic; human trafficking. A packed room at Parkland College listened to a panel of speakers on the topic. U.S. Congressman Rodney Davis (R) organized it.

A panel of speakers shared their research and advocacy work. One of the speakers is a victim of sex trafficking. Davis is a co-sponsor of a group of bills which will make online sex advertising illegal. He says the bills should be called in front of Congress in the next month.
