Our guest speakers will be Professors Anna Kosloski and Stephanie Bontrager Ryon.

Dr. Anna Kosloski is an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Her research is focused on the intersections of gender and crime. She explores this intersect by focusing on the needs and behavioral risks of women in correctional institutions and human trafficking crimes.

Dr. Stephanie Bontrager Ryon is an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Her scholarly research focuses on effective interventions for adult and juvenile offenders, sex trafficking, demand for illegal commercial sex, and sentencing disparities for disadvantaged populations.

Research Presentation Overview:
This presentation will provide an in-depth look at the prevalence and demand for sex trafficking across 11 cities in the United States, with particular attention paid to selling sex on the internet. The findings from this research project have a direct implication for law enforcement in trying to counter sex trafficking across the country. In addition to discussing demand for sex on the Internet, Drs Kosloski and Ryon will discuss the health concerns associated with sex trafficking.




    Our meetings are open to organizations and individuals
who are interested in stopping Modern Day Slavery,
especially in our community.
We are a 501 C 3 organization as recognized by the IRS.
