WEST PALM BEACH, FL-- Nearly two dozen people gathered Thursday night to raise awareness about sex slave rings.
They stood with flashlights at the Armory Arts Center, across from a home on Lake Avenue, to 'shine light' on a house that was used as a brothel.
The residence is one of three that was busted by federal agents in 2008 for human trafficking.
"I have every intention of going neighborhood by neighborhood and teaching what we need to look out for... the signs, so we can put a stop to this. If D.C. can't we will," said community activist Renee Morrison.
Morrison and her supporters have been working closely with several members of Congress.
Their hope is to create legislation that would help fight what they say is a growing issue.
