Very moving day. Thank you.

It was all fantastic, but the break out session[s] were phenomenal!

I really enjoyed the conference[...]. Helps me to look at trafficking with a somewhat different lens.

It is so important to set aside our own perspectives and be challenged to do better and create systematic change. Thank you for bringing in these powerful women.

Survivor panel [...] was informative, enlightening, it opens eyes to what works/not works.

Informative, thought provoking, educational
