Local group helps fight human trafficking

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg organization is hoping a new film about human trafficking shown in the Hub City tonight will encourage local residents to fight that problem around the world.

Members of the recently-formed group, Conspiracy of Hope want to increase awarness of human trafficking around the globe. This evening, at the Saenger Theater, they hosted a showing of "Call and Response," a rock music documentary about that issue.

Conspiracy of Hope also raised funds tonight to fight the problem and encouraged attendees to take part in a petition drive.
