Today is Human Trafficking Awareness Day. According to Stats Canada, in 2018, 97% of victims were female, and 73% of those were under the age of 24. Human trafficking has been a serious problem across North America for a number of years. As Micah Quinn explains, there is one organization in Lethbridge which is trying to do its part to not only raise awareness, but help out the community with special bags.
After graduating from Mount Royal University in Calgary with a Broadcasting Diploma, Micah made the trek down to Lethbridge to work for Bridge City News. He has previously worked at City TV Calgary on the Breakfast Television morning show. He looks forward to connecting with this community, and reaching a new audience. Micah has a passion for interviewing and finding out why people think the way they do. You’ll often find him pursuing local feature stories and hard news.
