Panelists include Vednita Carter, 2014 CNN Hero and founder of Breaking Free; Erin Albright, regional director, Give Way to Freedom; Hanni Stoklosa, Human Trafficking & Forced Labor Fellow at the FXB Center for Health & Human Rights at the Harvard School of Public Health; and Carmen Maianu, director of Amirah. The event is presented by Amirah, a nonprofit organization dedicated to using a whole-person approach to identify, care for, and empower female survivors of human trafficking who are 18 and over. Amirah's 10-bed safe house and nonresidential services are based out of the North Shore and serve New England. The free event includes an update from Amirah, a reception and a remembrance of Amirah’s House Coordinator Ifeyinwa Amalu, who died June 25 in a fatal car accident. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. Click here to learn more. ***Please note, photos and video are restricted at the event.***
