Victim Rights Month 2021 will conclude with a closing keynote address from 2020 Special Recognition Award recipient Audrey Morrissey. Audrey Morrissey is the Associate Director of My Life My Choice, a program of Justice Resource Institute. She is known on a local and national level for her work in the field of exploitation. Audrey will join us to discuss the importance of allies in the movement to end exploitation and human trafficking. Audrey will share her personal journey that led her to become an advocate for vulnerable young women who are at risk of being recruited into the commercial sex industry, and for those women who wish to leave exploitation behind them. She will touch on the importance of allies who advocate for survivor-led and survivor-informed services in the field. Audrey will close her presentation with a discussion on decriminalization vs. the equality model as it pertains to human trafficking and exploitation today.
