The remarks came from Sen. Martha McSally and Cindy McCain, widow of former Sen. John McCain and member of the Arizona Human Trafficking Council, at a Thursday event designed to help health care professionals recognize the signs of trafficking.

With its proximity to the border and to other large cities, Arizona is a hot spot for trafficking, state officials said.

Those efforts were continued in 2015 when Gov. Doug Ducey created the Arizona Human Trafficking Council, which focuses on spreading awareness and on prevention through tools like specialized anti-trafficking units. For the last four years, Ducey has proclaimed January Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

McSally said such cross-collaboration needs to continue because it paves “an easy path for wraparound services for those who are victimized.”
