Exhibit in Coralville displays human trafficking, hope to those held captive

Posted: Updated:
CORALVILLE (KWWL) -

An exhibit detailing the reality of human trafficking is on display for the second time in eastern Iowa.

The Journey to Freedom is currently on display at the Big White House in Coralville.

The exhibit looks at the lives and situations of millions of people around the world living without freedom.

Melanie Baker, the exhibit coordinator, says they not only want to raise awareness, but also give hope to those taken captive by human trafficking, including those in eastern Iowa.

"There are stories of trafficking in Iowa," said Baker. "This is something that's here, that's close to home, and that's really relevant for us to know about."

Baker says only one to 1-2% of victims are ever rescued.

The Journey to Freedom will be on display through March 1.
