Not worried about coronavirus concerns, hundreds of people came together at the Arizona Capitol to raise awareness about sex trafficking. They heard from different speakers around 5:30 p.m. on Friday before a peaceful march in the area. Some held signs that said “Save The Children” and “Child Lives Matter.”
“This is happening in all communities,” said Laura Suttle, a demonstrator. “This isn’t just a Phoenix problem. This isn’t an Arizona problem. This is world, human problem.”
Some of the protesters weren’t wearing masks, and the large group stayed close together. But they were passionate about the cause and wanted to get the word out that even during the pandemic, sex trafficking of kids and adults isn’t going away.
