Legal/Law Enforcement

Members of Tri-Cities Soroptimist Against Trafficking (TCSAT) attended the SARC Shine the Light on Human Trafficking Walk Friday in honor of National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. TCSAT member Helene Schwartz discuss with Washington State Senator Sharon Brown of the 8th Legislative District about trafficking issues as they complete the walk across the cable bridge connecting Kennewick with Pasco.

The Tri-City Coalition Against Trafficking is essential to our fight against the sexual exploitation of our children. Our law enforcement is committed to a victim centered approach and creating survivors out of innocent victims.
