The Detroit International Human Trafficking Summit is happening June 9 in Detroit. One of the important goals is training companies to better identify when trafficking might occur.
Gary Lalicki joined Stateside today to teach us a bit about human trafficking for business.
Gary Lalicki is the executive vice president of quality, training and product design for Health Management Systems of America, a Detroit-based employment assistance provider.
