The Millennium Hotel St. Louis signed a code Tuesday to help prevent the sex trafficking of children.
The move came as nearly 900 Sisters of St. Joseph gathered for a three-day event at the Millennium.
Executive director of the Federation of Sisters of St. Joseph in the U.S., Kathy McCluskey, says they’re working to inform Americans about the issue of child sex trafficking.
"What we’ve discovered is when you do that people will recognize the horror of it and immediately want to learn what can be done to prevent it at every level," McCluskey said.
