Human trafficking awareness on Feb. 27

A live display of human trafficking will be available in the vicinity of the Dawson County Courthouse in Lexington on Thursday, Feb. 27, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Leticia Bonifas, Founder and Director of Central Nebraska Human Trafficking, says the display is to raise awareness of the problem and to draw attention to the national "END IT" movement on Thursday. The "END IT" movement involves drawing a red 'X' on a voluntary participant's hand to take a stand against human trafficking.

Bonifas says human trafficking victim Rachel Davis from Omaha will be at the display to help with the cause.

Seven volunteers will be in a box during Thursday's display. The original plan was to have the display outside the courthouse, but if the weather isn't cooperating, it may be moved inside, possibly to the area of the Dawson County Court. Bonifas says she and Rachel Davis also have plans to travel to western Nebraska to raise awareness about human trafficking.
