FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A new online video series is designed to increase awareness of human trafficking in Kentucky.

The series was unveiled by the Kentucky attorney general's office, along with the Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation Prevention Board and the Catholic Charities of Louisville HOPE Campaign.

The seven-part video series includes perspectives from trafficking survivors, Kentucky legislators and law enforcement officials.

Attorney General Jack Conway called trafficking "modern-day slavery" and says it's happening in Kentucky.

The series was produced by the HOPE Campaign and funded through a grant from the Child Victims' Trust Fund.

It is available for viewing on ICareAboutKids.ky.gov and the HOPE Campaign's website at rescueandrestoreky.org .
