The Freedom in Action 2016 Conference, “Trafficking at the Intersections” sought to move beyond the common public narrative about human trafficking and instead explore the nuances of slavery and freedom. We asked questions such as: What other social inequalities intersect and perpetuate human trafficking? How can we combat this epidemic in our community from a multi-pronged approach? What does it mean to truly be ‘free’?
Minh Dang, a nationally recognized trainer, speaker and advocate served as the keynote speaker. Minh is a staunch advocate for survivors of child abuse and human trafficking and is developing strategies to support education, training, and leadership development for survivors.
