Kelly Nyberg, Co-Host/Co-Founder of Whatsupsftv, moderated a panel that included Mary Beth Holzwarth, South Dakota Human Trafficking Coordinator; Mary Hogan, Department of Homeland Security Community Relations Officer; and Alison Ramsdell, US Attorney for the District of South Dakota. They educated the audience on what is being done in legislation and law enforcement to mitigate the occurrence of human trafficking.
We were then honored to hear from three individuals who have overcome their personal experiences of human trafficking. Rebecca Cary, founder of Hands of Justice, where she helps Survivors find empowerment through education, job skills, ongoing support and by providing needed resources. She shared her reality of the factors that made her vulnerable to trafficking and what led her out.
