Shining a light on human trafficking

John McKown speaking on the TED stage.

As a small-town police officer, John McKown dealt with his share of prostitution cases. But after he left the force and became a truck driver, he faced prostitution in a new light - at truck stops.

In his TED@UPS talk, John describes how he encountered a young, tattered-looking girl forced to work as a prostitute at the truck stop where he had parked for the night. She reminded him of his own daughter.

Human trafficking victims are in cities, suburbs and rural areas in all 50 states. Today John does everything he can to educate others about the issue of human trafficking across America, as he fights to end it once and for all.
