Human trafficking are two words most people wouldn't associate with Eastern Carolina but it's happening.
A workshop Wednesday in Greenville hoped to educate people in a variety of work positions including health, law enforcement as well as state and county government.
The aim? To help them recognize the signs and the effects of human trafficking in our state.
A screening of the human trafficking centered documentary "Playground" was given to those who attended, as well as a presentation from a number of number of speakers.
A walk run to end human trafficking is planned for September 26th in the Greenville Town Commons.
