2020 FLORIDA LEGISLATION SESSION WATCH
Working to eliminate luck from the equation
Role as Advocacy Specialist
In my role as an advocacy specialist, I use my voice to advise leaders in the anti-trafficking and juvenile justice reform movement to develop laws and practices that support survivors of sex trafficking and youth involved in the justice system. Using my lived experiences, I inform the work at the Policy Center through community trainings, research, advocacy, and public speaking.
The Policy Center provides individual level advocacy to gain access to appropriate resources, monitoring quality of services, mentoring, transitional and re-entry services, housing, employment support, school connectedness and re-engagement. The Policy Center also helps girls and families learn how to advocate on their own behalf and navigate legal processes which can include arranging pro-bono legal services when warranted.
