“We’re excited for the opportunity to engage with other interested parties at this year’s conference,” stated Erin Meyer, Program Manager for The Salvation Army’s Anti-Human Trafficking efforts. “Our work to reduce human trafficking and support survivors is progressing, and we need to continue to press forward and engage more individuals in our community to join us in this work. The conferences are a great forum for those who are interested to learn more, regardless of their current level of knowledge on the subject. This year we will be focusing on the practical application of our community’s understanding, and sharing best practices and strategies to enhance the work already being done in order to increase our impact.”
