WMUK's five-part series on human trafficking: It Happens Here
The stories look at how traffickers operate and how hard it can be for people to escape trafficking and get help.
Stacy Chambliss reached out to WMUK in early 2022. She had been trafficked for two months in 2019, and now she was coming forward as a whistleblower. Stacy wanted her voice to be heard.
For over a year and a half, WMUK sought records and conducted interviews to tell Stacy's story, and examine the system that is supposed to help trafficking survivors.
Advisory: The stories include disturbing subject matter, including descriptions of sexual violence.
