Alice drives past a building every day on her way to work that seems to be a brothel. The “business” there is never formally open, however throughout the day she sees men slinking in and out of the back door. The front door has a hand written sign with a cell phone number on it. Alice calls the Greater Cincinnati Human Trafficking Hotline and reports her observations. She is told that, although the hotline will pass the information on, the police will likely never investigate the legitimacy of this “business” because it is not a priority for law enforcement.
The woman who took Alice’s call reports the lead to the police. The information is filed and never considered again.
Thank you for coming to see Traffick at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. We welcome you to continue the discussion on sex slavery in our community by sharing your experience in the comments.
