Description

Please join us on Tuesday, January 22nd, 1:00-3:00 PM for Tragedy to Triumph.

Rebekah Charleston will share her personal story of surviving more than a decade of sex trafficking that began as a minor. Rebekah will weave in training throughout to help you understand what sex trafficking looks like in America, how to identify victims and what types of services they will need to live restored lives after their trauma.

About the Speaker

Rebekah Charleston is the Executive Director of Valiant Hearts, a consultant with the National Criminal Justice Training Center, mother, honors graduate student, and advocate for victims of human trafficking. She is passionate about this issue because at the age of 17 she ran away and became a victim of human trafficking for more than ten years. She had multiple traffickers and was not able to escape until the federal authorities finally became involved. As a survivor, Rebekah has wisdom to impart and a story that will help you understand the issue, as well as shedding light on what happens here in America. Rebekah is the recipient of several awards, including the Survivor Leader Award in 2016, and has been featured in multiple media opportunities, including Deadline Crimes. Rebekah's story is one of hope and restoration.
