About the webinar:

Speaker: Asia Graves, a survivor of human trafficking and an anti-trafficking advocate, has dedicated her life to helping others understand the magnitude and implications of trafficking in the United States. From the ages 16 to 18, Asia was sold in cities all along the East Coast, including Boston, Atlanta, Miami and New York. After she escaped, Asia worked with the FBI to help indict members of the sex-trafficking ring who had held her captive. She worked as the Maryland Outreach Services Coordinator and Survivor Advocate at FAIR Girls, a non-profit devoted to preventing the exploitation of girls worldwide through empowerment and education. Asia testified before a U.S. Senate Committee on human trafficking and worked for the Department of Justice as a consultant and trainer in the Office for Victims of Crime. Today, Asia works for an anti-human trafficking organization and continues to advocate for anti-trafficking legislation.
