This site was created by the students of Professor John Wolff’s Composition II students in the spring of 2017. It’s title, “In the Pocket” is a slang term used by traffickers. To be kept in the pocket means to keep trafficked individuals unaware of where they are by preventing them from seeing landmarks, street signs, or other indications of location—any of which might theoretically be used by to strategize an escape.
It is hoped that this site will provide a public venue by which Michigan residents could learn more about the problem of Michigan’s human trafficking problem. The students strongly encourage users of this site to provide them with feedback and constructive suggestions for improvement.
