Host:
Emily Kieliszewski, Membership Engagement Specialist, Michigan Municipal League

Guests:
Kelly Breen, Councilmember, Novi
Theresa Rich, Councilmember, Farmington Hills

Human trafficking is real and it's happening in Michigan, perhaps even right in front of you. According to state statistics, it is the second largest criminal enterprise in Michigan – eclipsed only by drugs. On this episode of Limelight, Councilmembers Kelly Breen (Novi) and Theresa Rich (Farmington Hills) discuss their efforts to start the conversation at the local government level. That's important because our communities are where the activity actually happens. To learn more, listeners are welcome to attend the Human Trafficking and Our Community Town Hall at the Novi Civic Center on Thursday, April 11.
