Human trafficking conference set in Morgantown

MORGANTOWN (AP) — A workshop at West Virginia University will focus on issues related to human trafficking.

The free, private conference is set for Tuesday at WVU’s Life Science Building in Morgantown.

Among those invited to attend are law enforcement, social workers and educators.

The conference is being organized by the public-private West Virginia Intelligence Fusion Center, which is part of the state Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety.

Fusion liaison office coordinator Jessica Griffith says West Virginia’s geography and interstate system makes it a potential prime target for modern-day slavery.

Griffith says the goal of the conference is to give participants the tools that could help them if they come across human trafficking cases.
