A legislator, a member of a youth volunteer organization and a major league pitcher will host a town hall meeting on human trafficking Wednesday evening in North Spokane.
Rep. Kevin Parker, R-Spokane, said the meeting is designed to discuss what the state is doing to address human trafficking: "It is difficult to conceive that people are still being sold into slavery in our day and age, and in our country. However, human trafficking is very real and, unfortunately, prolific in our country."
Joining Parker will be Jeremy Affeldt, a pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, and Darrin Duty of Generation Alive, a volunteer organization for young people that Affeldt and his wife helped start.
The meeting is starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Service Station, 9315 N. Nevada.
