“Human Trafficking in Michigan” is scheduled for 1:30 p.m., Monday, Dec. 9, in G-240 (Student Center) at the Auburn Hills Campus, 2900 Featherstone Rd., Auburn Hills.

Schuette will speak about the results of the recently unveiled 2013 Report on Human Trafficking. The Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking met for more than six months, holding more than 60 meetings with victims, law enforcement, legislators, victim advocates, service providers, academics and national experts.

The Commission identified 312 confirmed victims by surveying a limited group of service providers.

The report recommends strengthening legal protections and expanding assistance for human trafficking victims and toughening laws to target traffickers. Schuette launched the state’s first Human Trafficking Unit in the Attorney General’s Office to prosecute human traffickers in 2011.

With five campuses throughout Oakland County, OCC is Michigan’s largest community colleges and the 23rd largest in the nation.  OCC offers degrees and certificates in more than 160 fields, including university transfer degrees in business, science and the liberal arts.  Approximately 78,000 undergraduates attend OCC each year.
