SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A man raising awareness for human trafficking arrived in Savannah on Tuesday. 

Roger DeHart is walking over 1,000 miles from his hometown of Fort Lauderdale, FL to the nation's capital, where his nonprofit will hold a rally with survivors and call on the federal government to do more to address human trafficking. He began his walk on March 31 and has been meeting with human trafficking survivors and hearing their stories. 

"When I get to DC, the goal will be to have a rally in support of these survivors, letting them know they have a voice and hope, and start a chain reaction throughout the country," DeHart said. 

DeHart has about 600 miles to go to reach Washington D.C.
