SWLA Abolitionists organizer, Rusty Havens said this day is an important reminder that their fight is not over, "This day is important because it brings awareness," Havens said. "We can not solve a problem that we don't know we have. Human trafficking happens here in Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana. Most people have no idea. My organization is here to change that. We want to make people aware and teach them what to look for so that they can make a difference."
