LOGAN-The Malouf Foundation is hosting an inaugural Human Trafficking Policy and Education Summit as part of their mission to provide education, promote healing, and ensure justice for trafficking survivors.
The Summit will be livestreamed on April 17, 2021 from 9:45 to 3:30 on April 17, 2021. Malouf enlisted some powerful panelists they hope will draw the public into the conversation of human trafficking, including a question and answer session in hopes of making a difference against the fastest-growing criminal enterprise in the world.
The keynote speaker will be former National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien. Other speakers will include Sam and Kacie Malouf, co-chairs and founders of the Malouf Foundation, Ambassador John Cotton Richmond, Elizabeth Smart, Steve Young, Deondra Brown, co-founder of the Foundation for Survivors, and David Sterling, CEO of doTERRA.
Three trafficking survivors were invited to be a part of the discussion including Coco Berthman, Julie Whitehead and Elizabeth Frazier.
Utah elected officials Senator Mike Lee, with Representatives Blake Moore, John Curtis, and Burgess Owens agreed to participate.
The flagship cause of the Malouf Foundation is to rescue and shelter sexually exploited children. The local foundation works to ensure every child lives with freedom, hope, justice, dignity, and sleeps in a safe home.
The US Department of Homeland Security reported human trafficking is a global problem with millions of men, women and children being forced or coerced into some kind labor or commercial prostitution.
The government agency said human trafficking happens right here in the United States using violence or promises of well-paying jobs even romantic relationships to lure the unsuspecting into trafficking situations.
Due to COVID guidelines, attendance will be limited and RSVP for media is required.
