On today's In the Moment...

Human trafficking is a significant problem in South Dakota. But there is hope in helping victims get out.

We gather a panel of experts to discuss sex and labor trafficking. Becky Rasmussen is the director and founder of Call to Freedom. Ruth Atkins is a grandmother of a survivor, and Mary Jackson experienced human trafficking firsthand.

Together, we talk about what to watch out for, the tactics traffickers use and what victims need from their families and communities.

Also, the legislative session is entering its final weeks. We'll listen to a discussion on two bills that would regulate dealings with foreign countries and companies. Hear legislators debate Senate Bill 185 and Senate Bill 189 in their own words.

You'll also hear from an activist who was at Wounded Knee in 1973.

Plus, almost every dog kennel had a canine occupant at the Sioux Falls Humane Society last week. We check in to learn why animal shelters across the state have been near capacity and what animal lovers can do to help.
