Abstract: COLLIER COUNTY: A group of women are fighting the growing problem of human trafficking. They say they're concentrating their efforts on, of all things, feminine products. The Florida Council of Catholic Women is writing letters to the makers of Tampax and other feminine products. They want the companies to put an emergency hotline on their packaging to let women know if they're being held to work against their will, they can call a 24-hour hotline at 1-888-373-7888. "In human trafficking, these people are owned and sold from person to person and they're never free," said Janet Mitchell of the Council of Catholic Women. "If they see that phone number, they know somewhere out there people are trying to help them. It will give them hope if nothing else."
