 This week on Dialogue Mark Sims interviews Jillian Gilchrest, Chair of the Connecticut Trafficking in Persons Council, about the problem of sex trafficking in Connecticut.  She says it is a problem here in our state, as more than 500 children have been sex trafficked – sold for sex – in Connecticut over the last 5 years.  Gilchrest tells how they want to raise awareness about this, and discusses their efforts to end it by targeting the demand side of men buying sex, which fuels sex trafficking
