The U.S. Chamber of Commerce hosted a forum on Integrating Services for Human Trafficking Survivors on January 15, 2020 to highlight the initiatives of businesses in assisting in the fight against human trafficking. SAFE Center Founder and Director Susan Esserman was invited to deliver a keynote address. During her presentation – “Partnering with Businesses to Combat Trafficking and Empower Survivors” – Susan introduced the SAFE Center’s newly developed survivor-centered economic empowerment program designed to help our clients build skills, independence, and to find sustainable employment. Susan called upon the businesses in attendance to share their expertise with survivors through mentorship and volunteer opportunities, provide learning experiences for survivors seeking employment, and offer job opportunities for survivors.
