For most Americans, human trafficking is a horrific practice that nearly always seems to happen overseas and far away. However, a recent report by the Ohio Trafficking in Persons Study Commission says about 1,000 American-born children are forced into the sex trade every year in Ohio alone.

We speak to Celia Williamson, an associate professor at the University of Toledo who led the research. We also hear from Theresa Flores, a victim of human trafficking and author of "The Slave Across the Street: The True Story of How an All-American Teenager Survived the World of Human Trafficking."
