Why Georgia Needs A Memorial For The 'Comfort Women' Of WWII

"Comfort Women" refers to the women and girls trafficked by the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II. This was one of the largest known cases of human trafficking in modern history. A memorial was slated for the Center for Civil and Human Rights, but it backed out in March. Now the City of Brookhaven is stepping up to host the statue. We talk about these developments with Brookhaven Councilman John Park and Atlanta Comfort Women Memorial Task Force member Kelly Ahn.
