Beth Jacobs, TAT’s field trainer and a survivor leader, was honored with the Courage Award at the 18th annual From Slavery to Freedom Gala hosted by the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking (CAST) in Los Angeles, California on May 10. This annual event brings together survivors, celebrities, civic leaders and socially-conscious entrepreneurs for the cause of ending modern slavery.

Jacobs, the founder of Willow Way, a support group empowering victims of trafficking, is well known nationally for her public policy work to help survivors clear their records and obtain the necessary legal/documentation support to succeed in their lives after recovery from trafficking.

In addition to her presentation at a coalition build in Tyler, Texas on June 7, Jacobs will be sharing her experiences as a trafficking victim and discussing techniques for interacting with and interviewing the suspected human trafficking victim at Ohio State Patrol’s Transportation Coalition meeting on June 27 in Columbus, Ohio.
