Video: Watch “Indiana Newsdesk” May 23, 2014

We follow volunteers before the Indy 500 raising awareness about sex trafficking and the costs and risks of transitioning associated with transgender youth.

Coming up on “Indiana Newsdesk” … it’s called the Greatest Spectacle in racing – the Indianapolis 500 is this weekend. With any large event there’s an increase in sex trafficking. Ahead we follow a group of volunteers as they canvass Indianapolis trying to raise awareness.

In part two of our series on transgender youth the costs of transitioning and the risks associated with it.

Plus ahead of Memorial Day we introduce you to a veteran who’s being honored for his decades of service.
