LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Discussions about tribal efforts to combat human trafficking as well as an upcoming conference devoted to the topic are planned during a commission meeting in Lansing.

The Michigan Human Trafficking Commission is scheduled to meet Wednesday morning in the office of state Attorney General Bill Schuette.

The meeting is expected to feature representatives of the Firekeepers Casino and Nottawaseppi Huron Band of Potawatomi. They will talk about their efforts to curb human trafficking.

Also on the agenda is discussion about a conference scheduled for Sept. 29 in Ann Arbor. It aims to raise awareness about human trafficking and highlight efforts to stop it.

Schuette worked with the state Legislature to form the commission in 2013. It includes lawmakers, state leaders, activists and law enforcement officials.
