Human trafficking is happening everywhere, including Wyoming, and it’s hiding in plain sight.

That’s according to Terri Markham, co-founder and executive director of a non-profit agency called Uprising based in Sheridan.

According to Uprising, “Trafficking is a serious problem everywhere. It stems from the demand people have to purchase sex. Unfortunately, anywhere there are people, there will be some who desire to purchase sex, and someone there to capitalize on that. It is hard to know the scope of the issue, as trafficking is a highly under-reported crime.”
