Amanda Finger, MA, is the Executive Director and co-founder of the
Denver-based non-profit, Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking, which has
focused on anti-trafficking efforts since 2005. Her professional background
includes teaching human trafficking and women’s health courses, health
advocacy in Washington, DC, Congressional campaign organizing, serving as a
Legislative Aide for the Colorado General Assembly, and field research on
human trafficking and forced migration in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Since 2012, LCHT and many partners began documenting efforts throughout
Colorado aimed at ending human trafficking. This baseline assessment is part
of the Colorado Project to Comprehensively End Human Trafficking, which
follows one broad research question: What would it take to end human
trafficking in Colorado? The Colorado Project 2.0 (CP2.0) represents an
important milestone in that journey, which was undertaken in 2018 and
published in spring 2019. Partnership efforts across the state were a primary
focus for CP2.0, and we are excited to spend our summer traveling the state
and taking back these findings to our communities.
ATTENTION! - Volunteer Summit scheduled for April 27th - postponed!
We have to sincerely apologize as we had created a link to register for our
Volunteer Summit and posted it on a variety of platforms, but unfortunately
it had not been included on an e-newsletter. If you were planning on
attending the Volunteer Summit on April 27th, we greatly thank you! Because
we thought the link had been included everywhere, and we didn't have anyone
register, we closed registration and are planning on holding another summit
in 2-3 months. Again, we are deeply sorry for the miscommunication, we are
extremely grateful for your interest in our work and hope you will be able to
attend the next Volunteer Summit we have scheduled. We will do a much better
job communicating once we have another summit scheduled. We apologize for
whatever inconvenience this may cause.
