Michigan lawmakers pass bill to help victims of human trafficking

"I believe it will change people's lives and I believe it will save lives," Elesondra DeRomano, founder of STARS and survivor said. DeRomano works everyday to save teenagers and young women who've become victims of human trafficking. Through her organization called STARS or Standing Together Against Real Slavery, she hits the streets looking for anyone who might need help.

"I do a lot of street outreach," she said. “I work with the women giving them safety kits, whatever they might need."

Over the years, state leaders have also passed legislation to help. Most recently, the Michigan House introduced and passed the Human Trafficking Notification Act.

Now every rest stop, welcome center, adult entertainment establishment or property known for prostitution must post a human trafficking notice.

It must be a certain size, hung where people can see it, and properly display the contact information for the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline.

"I think it's great that Michigan has stepped up," DeRomano told 13abc. "They have said, "we're coming to the table to do what we can to try to change these laws."

For her, the state's decision really hits home.

"I was taken and pimped out in Michigan. I was trafficked from 11 to 12 years old. There were no places that had any signs that said look for this, or these indicators," DeRomano said.
