Season 2, Ep. 8 – Shifting Shadows: Human Trafficking on the Streets and Online


Marisol Nichols sits down with Corporal (Ret.) Alan Wilkett to discuss the harsh realities of human trafficking, emphasizing its alarming shift from the streets to the digital world. They also reveal how brothels have evolved into seemingly innocent establishments, where women and minors are often forced to work. 

They highlight the crucial role of laws like the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) in combating this crime and underline recent initiatives such as Florida’s ‘John Registry’ for public accountability.

Further discussing concerns over legalizing sex work, they emphasize how this might conceal human trafficking activities.

Join them as they navigate the complexities of human trafficking and explore potential solutions to help survivors and to eliminate trafficking in our society.
