A couple hundred people attended a candlelight vigil at River Park Square on Sunday for Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Approximately 27 million people are currently enslaved around the world. Speakers included Pastor Amber Dawn McCall who was born into human trafficking 38 years ago in British Columbia. She was rescued and raised by her aunt and uncle in Sandpoint from age of 6, after her mother died.
