Womankind is proud to present our 5th annual anti-human trafficking conference, Working for Change. Panelists will be discussing the importance of understanding the impact of culture in anti-human trafficking services. What does "culture" mean? How does it play a role in an individual's life? What are some concrete ways in which providers navigate both the challenges as well as the benefits of culture? How does this impact our anti-human trafficking work? How do we continue to work for change?

Panelists include:

Anne Patterson, Division Director at STEPS to End Family Violence

Den Quinsay, Associate Director of Community Programs at Womankind

Dr. Irene Chung, Clinician and retired faculty member of Silberman School of Social Work at CUNY Hunter College

Rebecca de Simone, Director of Center for Human Trafficking at My Sister's Place

Womankind will be providing a light breakfast, lunch and delicious snacks throughout the conference!* The first half of the conference will be dedicated to the panel discussion; the second half consists of group discussions and opportunities to connect with each other.

*Please note that accommodation for the conference is limited. We encourage all attendees to RSVP as soon as they are able.
