MEET OUR SPEAKERS

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: KHURSHIDA BEGUM

Khurshida Begum educates and challenges individuals and organizations to recognize human trafficking and its negative effect on all communities everywhere. Her mission is to urge people to understand this complex issue and to keep our vulnerable people protected from being exploited.

Ms. Begum founded ASHHO, which in Bengali means to “come” join the movement, because all people matter. ASHHO provides comprehensive training to educate and empower communities on human trafficking. The training includes guidance on identifying victims and on helping survivors by connecting them with crucial services and resources. Ms. Begum teaches by sharing her personal experience of being a trafficking survivor from Bangladesh. What she learned through her experience, and the strategies she used to overcome her situation, are instructive—both for survivors and those tasked with identifying or assisting them.
