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

I am passionate in standing up for those who feel they've lost their voice and identity due to being victims of sexual assault and/or sex trafficking. I will begin training this summer, with a local non-profit, in order to become more involved in working with victims of sexual assault and sex trafficking. I currently intern as a Victim Court Program Advocate, and on occasion have encountered victims of trafficking in my social work career. I have long felt a sense of passionate purpose to help these victims in particular. To me, there is nothing more powerful than to witness the restoration of hope and dignity to a person whom others unsuccessfully tried to destroy for their own wicked gain. It is my hope to see a day when sex trafficking no longer exists. Until that time, I wish to dedicate my career in helping victims of trafficking and see justice served on the perpetrators of this crime.

Introduction

Hello, I'm Giné Ryan. I am a Court Program Victim Advocate. It is my passion to become more active in the fight to end modern slavery and help rebuild the lives of those who have been victims of this crime.

What Giné R. is saying about this Meetup Group

Although I have not been able to attend as many events as I would like to with this group, I love the many different opportunities this group provides for involvement in the fight against human trafficking. I have been able to attend some of the same events that this group has listed through other non-profit organizations, and I am always happy to see that this group is also there to be a part of these same community events.
