MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

An estimated 18,000 young men and women are trapped in the world of sexual slavery in this country.

January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month, with advocates hoping to bring more attention to the problem.

The State of Tennessee is rated first in the nation in passing legislation to battle the issue. But even that, according to the men and women fighting on the front lines of this battle, say more has to be done.

Kelley Alsobrook, director of Ashes 2 Beauty Ministry, was a victim of human trafficking. She's started a non-profit and is holding a rally Friday night, Jan. 10. Click the link for information about Friday's event.
