The Southern Ute Cultural Center and Museum hosted a human trafficking meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 16, which covered the serious topics of slave labor that has occurred in the state of Colorado, as well as throughout the United States. Human trafficking is when a victim is induced to perform labor or unlawful services through oppression, fraud, or coercion. It is a crime of severe control of one person by another through force and pressure in exchange for some kind of labor or amenities, often of a sexual nature. Larger Colorado cities, including Denver and Colorado Springs, have had increased human trafficking cases since the beginning of 2014. Various state departments and administrations have taken prevention strategies into full affect to ensure the halt of human trafficking in he state of Colorado.
