Why are you (getting) involved in the fight against human trafficking?

I have a large passion for human rights and particularly the fight against human trafficking. I participated in the 2010 Stop Modern Slavery Walk and also lobbied on Capitol Hill to implement the HR 5137 Girl's Protection Act against Female Genital Mutilation. Working together and spreading the word about the harsh reality and statistics of Human Trafficking can help to stop modern slavery.


I currently live in Arlington, VA and am attending Graduate School and working. I have a large interest in human rights and am looking forward to the Stop Modern Slavery Walk. I participated in the 2010 Walk and served as a volunteer.
