LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A Louisville-based organization that fights sexual slavery hopes to gather information and raise awareness of sex trafficking during the Kentucky Derby Festival.
The Redlight Project has already shot video interviews with human trafficking victims in Cleveland, Chicago, and Detroit, as well as Fort Lauderdale, New Orleans, and Houston.
During the Derby Festival, the organization has set up a 24-hour human trafficking hotline: 1(866) 325-2038. It says anyone can leave an anonymous tip; it will pass information on to law enforcement. It's also placing fliers in at-risk areas and asking people to keep an eye out for signs of sex trafficking.
About 20 Redlight Project volunteers will also be looking at high-trafficking locations. Those volunteers will also reach out to about 60 known prostitutes in the Louisville area, asking them if they are "under duress" or need medical attention.
The organization intends to release a documentary in the fall which includes interviews with both victims and pimps from across the country. You can see the trailer at: http://redlightredemption.org/the-movie/
