How this will help

This week on "Let It Rip," we take a closer look into the dangerous world of sexual slavery and what can be done to stop it.

Joining Huel Perkins and Charlie Langton on our panels are:

Malynda Jennings, a woman who knows first hand the ordeal those women in Cleveland went through.  She was just six years old when members of her own family forced her into sexual slavery.

Julia McGowen, a graduate student at Oakland University who has studied the problem.  She says abuse and exploitation of young women is rampant across the country, including here in Detroit.  She also works with The Hope Project.

Dr. Gearld Shiener, a psychiatrist.

Andrew Arena, the former Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Detroit. He now heads the Detroit Crime Commission.

Finally, help is available for women trapped in human trafficking.  You can find more information at or you can call the Detroit FBI at (313) 965-2323.
