The American Association of University Women at SWOSU met Monday, Jan. 27, for their regular monthly meeting.
Since January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, SWOSU Police Chief Kendra Brown spoke at the meeting and informed members and visitors about the dangers of slavery and human trafficking.
According to Brown, there are three certified adult human trafficking shelters in Oklahoma. One of those shelters, the Mission House, is located in Clinton. She spoke of methods that are used to seek out victims for slavery and human trafficking.
