Our guest speaker was Amanda Finger.

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 womenington, 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.

                    Our meetings are open to organizations and individuals who are interested in stopping
                    Modern Day Slavery, especially in our community.
