About Trafficking

Human trafficking is a term used to define both labor and sexual exploitation. There are an infinite number of stories and ways this issue presents itself today – from humans being trafficked internationally or into the United States, to victims who are born here, and are exploited through sex, labor or domestic servitude. My work focuses primarily on the sexual exploitation of minors and adults who were born in the US.

Human trafficking is complex. From individual needs to institutional overhauls, we have our work cut out for us, and it’s going to take more than a village to start to solve these problems. Partnerships for trainings, and with government and community organizations are the very fiber of the work I do.

participant feedback

I read every survey filled out by trainees, in order to improve the work I do. This data helps me to know where I need to improve, or better communicate complex ideas. I am grateful for every person who has ever taken the time to give me feedback on the work I do.
