SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Dozens of Utah teens are now better prepared to avoid becoming a victim of sex trafficking or sexual exploitation.

They gathered at the Sorenson Unity Center on Saturday to hear from various experts from Unified Police and the Attorney General’s Office.

They told the kids that sex trafficking is not something that just happens in third world countries.

“It’s in all of our neighborhoods. It’s happening right underneath our noses,” Terry Palmer told Good4Utah. “We want them to be able to identify what predators look like and what the grooming process looks like.”

Backyard Broadcast sponsored the summit. It’s a youth movement with a goal of keeping children safe from the clutches of sex predators.
