Healthcare and Human Trafficking: A Crucible for Change
Presenter: Jerome Elam
Healthcare providers have become sentinels in the war against human trafficking. A survey of survivors found that 85% came
in contact with a healthcare provider while they were being trafficked. Jerome Elam believes healthcare providers stand at the precipice of change. Elam is a survivor
of child abuse/domestic violence, child sex trafficking, and child pornography. He shares his experiences “in the hope that those suffering in silence will find the courage to speak out and share their voices…I have been blessed to have God reveal His purpose to me in saving innocent children from predators.” For Elam’s advocacy work, the National Council of Jewish Women has given him the Award for Courage.
Jerome Elam is President and CEO of the Trafficking in America Task Force. Elam is a fierce advocate for all children deprived of their voice. He is a public speaker, a staff writer,
and known columnist for Communities Digital News. Recently featured as one of New York’s New Abolitionists, he remains dedicated to the protection and empowerment of trafficked people.
