THE Kerry-based people and sex trafficking awareness campaign, Kerry Stop Sex Trafficking have launched a new trilingual information brochure in order to better promote their message across the entire community.

Last Thursday Arts Minister Jimmy Deenihan and Ireland South MEP Sean Kelly joined campaigners in Tralee to launch the new English, French and Polish language brochure.

Kerry Stop Sex Trafficking is an Awareness Group set up in 2007 to raise Awareness regarding Sex trafficking in Ireland.

The group hold awareness days throughout the year, work in conjunction with anti prostitution campaign Turn Off The Red Light and also regularly make contributions at conferences organised by the Open Door Network and the Kerry Diocese.

"The Kerry Stop Sex Trafficking information leaflet has been available in English since 2008. However, in an effort to make it more user Friendly and more available for people from other countries we are now publishing the leaflet in English, Polish and French," said KSSS spokesperson Cllr Mairead Fernane.

"We ask people to become aware of the signs of Sex Trafficking. For example a high percentage of women and young girls living in one house. high security around a house with an unusual amount of activity or a change of personnel on an ongoing basis. If people notice these signs then you can ring the number on our leaflet anonymously," she said.
