NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

Human Trafficking is a criminal activity that is fueled by greed and exploits marginalized and vulnerable people right here in our backyard in Orange County and across the globe. Our work at Global Center for Women and Justice at Vanguard University depends on Research, Education, Advocacy and Collaboration to build HOPE to change the future. Our research shows that, as a society, we are not doing enough to PREVENT human trafficking. Yes, we need an ambulance at the bottom of the cliff to rescue those who fall; but we also need to be building a fence to protect our community and our children.

The Global Center is investing in the next generation of advocates who are leading in the battle whether on the frontlines as educators, parents, social workers, or criminal justice investigators. We are equipping frontline leaders locally, nationally, and globally. We are collaborating with local and national partners to strengthen our response. Do you see the trend?  We are doing this.  We can all do something.

Thank you for joining us!!

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Harmony Grillo Headshot

Harmony Dust Grillo, MSW 

Founder & Executive Director, Treasures.LA

Survivor of exploitation turned UCLA honor student, Harmony’s goal is to help women and girls entrenched in sexual exploitation find freedom.

Armed with personal experience, evidence-based theories and a Master’s Degree in Social Work, she comprehensively sheds light on the impact of a pornified culture and the lives of those trapped within it. Her pursuit of justice has led to Congressional recognition and opportunities to train the Department of Justice and FBI in best practices. In 2003, she founded Treasures to support other women in their recovery from the commercial sex industry and trafficking.

Harmony’s memoir, Scars and Stilettos, details her harrowing account of moving from victim to survivor to liberator.
