'Man Up' event at Wayne State calls for the end of sex trafficking

Attorney General Bill Schuette created a task force to end it. Senator Judy Emmons holds survivor forums to help spread awareness about it. Now, Wayne State University is holding a special summit that they hope will help bring an end to sex trafficking in Michigan. 

Man Up, a three-hour event to be held on Saturday, May 16, will call for the end of sex trafficking by asking men to stop using the services of prostitutes and pimps, which would help end sex trafficking.

The event will feature three speakers: Award-winning journalist and author of The Johns — Sex for Sale and the Men Who Buy It Victor Malarek; sex trafficking survivor Leslie F. King; and Michigan State Police Detective Sgt. Edward Price. 

The event begins at 9 a.m. inside the Student Center Ballroom at 5221 Gullen Mall, Detroit.
