Distributors Fight Human Trafficking
More than 300,000 children are at risk of being trafficked for sex in the United States, and those numbers are highest in California. Human trafficking is happening in all of our communities, urban and rural, and we have the power to help stop this horrible crime. Markstein Sales Co. is partnering locally and nationally to help combat this problem and this page provides videos and resources to encourage others to join us in this fight. From beer distributors to individuals, it only takes a few minutes to learn what to look for and how to save a life.
