WHAT ATTENDEES ARE SAYING

“This was such an inspiring and wonderful conference.I truly did learn so much and I appreciated hearing from survivors as well as experts who are doing amazing things to tackle human trafficking.It was an amazing experience.”

“Great presenters, great subjects, and a palpable shared passion for this important, but often difficult work. Made me feel rejuvenated and prepared to continue pursuing better outcomes for my HT survivors.”

“The conference is well organized and provides opportunity for every profession to engage in the fight while also allowing plenty of opportunity to network.”

“The thing I liked the most about the conference was the diversity of voices and approaches included; we got to hear from multiple types of system actors with different attitudes (on the subject).”
