ABC's "American Crime"  will focus on human trafficking this season, 10 pm Sundays on ABC.  Polaris worked with producers to create a realistic portrayal and show the struggles of the service providers behind the fight against human trafficking.  See the trailer.

Barbara Amaya's story is featured in this television video "Woman Recounts How She Fell Into a Sex Trafficking Ring at Just Twelve Years Old"
