In January 2016, a member of the Brooklyn United Methodist Church invited me through The Enitan Story’s Facebook page to a community event at the church. At the event, she invited me to be a speaker in March on human trafficking and the newly formed U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking.
The event was scheduled for March 9. I introduced the Advisory Council members in my presentation entitled, Human Trafficking: The Role of the U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking.
The members of the Advisory council are leaders in their various communities who are also working hard to fight human trafficking. Most importantly, the council represents the voices of survivors across the United States and other parts of the world.
The Advisory council has been saddled with the responsibility of making recommendations, among others to help shape services to better serve survivors of human trafficking across the United States.

The first report is due in May. I am using this opportunity again to call on community members, and, especially, survivors alike to reach out to us should you have recommendation that will benefit survivors across the U.S. and other parts of the world.
Below is a video report from the event. Thanks to Channel 12.
