Meaningful Partnerships, Intersectionality, and the Role of Survivor Leadership

This keynote will take a deep dive into what sex trafficking and the transition from oppressed victim to thriving overcomer looks like from the lens of survivors, with a particular focus on the intersectionality of marginalized communities. The presentation is designed to serve as a catalyst for the exploration of key frameworks such as adultification and intersectionality—how the intersections of race, gender, criminalization, and other social dynamics intertwine to intensify challenges for trafficking victims.
