Human trafficking, the modern slave trade: 30 million people are enslaved in the world today, more than anytime in human history, and yes, human trafficking has taken place right here in Cambridge. This episode of Cambridge Uncovered places a focus on sex trafficking, as NeighborMedia coordinator Frank Morris interviews Simon Hedlin of Cambridge-based Demand Abolition, Steven Procopio with Roxbury Youthworks, and Det. Sgt. Louis Cherubino from the Cambridge Police Department. Find out more about the issue, what's being done to combat it, and how you can help combat slavery in your own community. This episode also includes a reading of the documentary play, "Body and Sold," based on interviews with trafficking survivors from cities across the U.S., including right here in Boston.

Look for this episode of Cambridge Uncovered to play throughout the month of February: Wednesdays at 9 p.m. and Fridays at 1 p.m. on CCTV Ch. 8.
