Brazos County is in the Texas Trafficking Triangle, one of the largest human trafficking highway corridors in the United States, between Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio.
County commissioners at their last meeting presented an annual proclamation recognizing human trafficking awareness and prevention month.
Accepting the proclamation, Tracy Calanog of the College Station based Trafficking and Exploitation Action Network promoted an interfaith effort to end human trafficking Monday at 6 p.m. on Governor Abbott’s Facebook page.
Calanog also shared she and her husband adopted two children last year who she said came from a home where those caregivers wanted to sell them.
