The City of Grand Rapids is hosting an event Tuesday, Jan. 23, to help combat the issue of sex trafficking.

The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Salvation Army KROC Center off of Division Avenue on the south side of the city.

The event aims to help people be better able to identify the signs of trafficking, and react when they see them.

There will be videos, a spoken word performance and a community expert panel.

Participants will also have the chance to watch the documentary "Break the Chain." The documentary is Michigan based and deals with human trafficking.
