I was recently a guest on ICOSA Connect & Collaborate to talk about sex trafficking along with Denver District Attorney, Mitch Morrissey. CLICK HERE to read the summary from ICOSA and to listen to the full podcasts.
I was invited to be at last Friday’s signing into law of Colorado HB 1151, which allows trafficking victims to take civil action against their traffickers, provides minor victims the option to expunge trafficking related charges and requires the posting of a victim services hotline in massage parlors and escort bureaus.
Here is a photo of myself, Governor Hickenlooper, Representative McCann and advocates from CCASA, COVA and LCHT.
The wait is finally over! My article entitled “Intimate Partner and Intrafamilial Exploitation: How the Intersections of Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking can profoundly affect our Work” has been published by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) in the 2011 issue of The Voice: A Journal of the Battered Women’s Movement.
The article examines human trafficking by family members and intimate partners and how raising awareness about this form of abuse is crucial in both domestic violence and human trafficking fields.
You can find the article here, on p.42-45: http://shop.ncadv.org/inc/sdetail/116/11519. There is a $10 fee to purchase the e-journal for non-NCADV members; however, there are a number of wonderful articles in the issue so it is definitely worth the cost!
I’ve also been told that you can search “the voice fall 2011 ncadv” online and find a link to the pdf of the article that way.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for information regarding training and consultation I provide on this topic and others!
I wanted to welcome you to my new consulting webpage and say how excited I am to kick-off this new phase in my work on gender-based violence and human trafficking. I have enjoyed being a direct service provider and advocate for victims/survivors for 8 years and in the past 5 years, the experience I’ve gained as a trainer and educator has inspired me to concentrate on this part of my work with more emphasis.
I recently made the move from Washington D.C. to Denver, CO and couldn’t be more excited about living and working in Colorado and the Midwest and Western regions (though, I will travel anywhere!). While our 2 years in D.C. was a great experience for my husband and I, we are thrilled to relocate to the mountains and call Colorado home.
I hope you enjoy the website and please contact me with any questions you might have about trainings or consultations.
