According to Forbes, in 2015 Generation Z made up 25% of the U.S. population, making them larger  than the Baby Boomer generation or Millennials. Millennials and Generation Z are our most underutilized resource in the nonprofit sector. They have the power to enact change in 140 characters and are itching for a cause to dedicate themselves to. This talk explains the power and importance of youth engagement in our work to end trafficking and support survivors. 

The talk also addresses a new approach to economic empowerment in the context of rehabilitation work with sex trafficking survivors and Rakshana, a nonprofit with divisions in five countries that is filling the need for support for rescued sex trafficking victims through STEM and financial literacy education.
