The City of Cambridge is hosting a human trafficking awareness event on Thursday night.
Councillor Donna Reid organized the meeting with help from the Business and Professional Women's Club of Cambridge.
"It's about what we can do as citizens to help stop human trafficking. We know it occurring in our city, and along the 401. Since the 401 runs through our city, it makes us an ideal place for criminals who want to engage young women and men into human trafficking."
Reid said often times, people are duped into these dangerous situations, and then find they have no way of getting away from it.
Tonight's event will feature remarks from WRPS Superintendent Daryl Goetz, and Kelly Tallon Franklin.
"She's with Courage for Freedom, and has lived experience with trafficking. She'll be talking about what people in the city can do to help eliminate this."
The awareness session runs at Cambridge City Hall in the Bowman Room from 7 to 9 p.m.
