Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- An event Sunday in the Valley focused on combating human trafficking.

A press conference was held at Mandalay Bay.

American Trucking Associations joined forces with Truckers Against Trafficking to raise awareness about human trafficking among professional truck drivers.

They're also educating them about how to fight against the crime.

The Department of Justice estimates between 100,000 and 300,000 children are at risk every year of traffickers in the United States.
