Filmmaker and media mogul Tyler Perry partnered with Georgia First Lady Marty Kemp to release a PSA urging Georgians to join the fight against human trafficking. Perry’s studio produced the video which wan be viewed below.
The PSA calls viewers to action by imploring them to participate in the First Lady's Human Trafficking Awareness Training to learn about warning signs and who to contact for help.
"We are deeply grateful to Tyler Perry for his dedicated work and leadership to support survivors and raise awareness about human trafficking," Kemp said. "With his partnership, more Georgians will be equipped with the knowledge to identify potential instances of trafficking - but most importantly, they will be equipped with the ability to save lives."
The PSA was released around the same time as U.S. Marshals announced that they recovered 39 missing children in Georgia during “Operation Not Forgoten.”
