Several months ago Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes participated in a child sex trafficking sting operation in Colombia, which was part of the Underground Railroad operation.

The Attorney General will talk about that experience Wednesday when he speaks at Utah State University’s Old Main Building, room 121 at 4 p.m. The event is co-sponsored by the USU Government Relations Council and the USU Institute of Government and Politics. Andy Pierucci is a council member and on KVNU’s For the People program Monday said the event will be an eye opener.

“There (are) two million children around the world that are enslaved,” Pierucci said. “That’s something that a lot of people don’t really think about or realize. What we’re hoping this event will do is raise awareness to people in Cache Valley, especially students on campus, and also to help people to realize that politics matters.

“Although Sean Reyes wasn’t going down there as the Attorney General, necessarily, or fulfilling his responsibility as the Utah Attorney General. He is an elected official representing the state.”

He said the public is invited to attend the Attorney General’s presentation. Pizza will be served after he speaks.
