From parents to just concerned citizens, a group met in Lincoln on Saturday afternoon, to hold a march in hopes of raising awareness for child trafficking.
“It’s become a $150 billion industry, you know,” said Paula Carnegey. “There’s child harvesting. There’s sex trafficking. You know, there’s just all types of terrible things going on with these children and they’re being silenced and we need to stand up and be their voice.”
A dozen people met near north 40th and w street to protest. Their goal was to help spread the word about putting a stop to child trafficking. Carnegey says the group met through Facebook. All of them from different parts of the state but coming together this.
“I wanna just tell everybody to do your research and get behind this because it is something that needs to be done,” said Carnagey.
The group also walked down Vine street after meeting up.
This was the second weekend Channel 8 has seen walks like this one and they say plans to do more peaceful protests are in the works, as they continue to grow.
