The 4W Initiative (For Women, For Well-Being, For Wisconsin and the World) presents Voices of Hope: Listening and Supporting Survivors of Human Trafficking. The event will feature three different speakers.

Keynote speaker, Shamere McKenzie, tells the inspiring store of a woman who survived sex trafficking in the United States. Shamere has become an activist and international speaker, giving a voice to enslaved women and children, those who perish while enslaved, and survivors who suffer in silence, afraid to share their stories.

Christine Stark is an award-winning writer, visual artist, national and international speaker of Anishinaabe & Cherokee ancestry.

Rebecca Bender is a survivor, leader and advocate in the efforts to eradicate modern day slavery.

This event is free and open to the public. A reception will be held at 6:30 pm and the lecture will begin at 7:00 pm.
