State Rep. Derrel Fincher, R-Bartlesville, is hosting an interim study next week focused on labor trafficking within domestic violence relationships and its impact on Oklahoma families.
The study will be held before the House Judiciary Committee beginning at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, in Room 206 at the state Capitol. The study also will be livestreamed on the House website, https://www.okhouse.gov/Video/Default.aspx.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
“Domestic violence is something that affects many Oklahoma families. What people often miss is that labor trafficking can also be part of this cycle of abuse,” Fincher said. “This study will give us a high-level overview of the topic and, through expert presentations and survivor testimony, delve into the ways in which labor trafficking can manifest within an abusive relationship.”
Derrel Fincher serves District 11 in the Oklahoma House of Representatives, which includes parts of Rogers, Tulsa and Washington counties.
