We’ve kept the secret long enough… this year’s inspirational keynote speaker will be Leslie Briner, MSW, Consultant, YouthCare.
For over 20 years, Leslie Briner has served families experiencing homelessness, youth with developmental disabilities, youth in the foster care system and, since 2005, has worked with commercially sexually exploited (CSE) youth. She has designed, implemented and directed services for sexually exploited and trafficked youth and developed comprehensive training on the topics of sexual exploitation and trafficking. To date, she has trained over 7,000 people as well as providing substantial technical assistance and consultation on these issues in Washington State and across the country.
Leslie will be presenting “Building a Justice Centered Movement” reexamining broader social movements and how we can impact each other to collectively build justice. Join Leslie as she writes a love letter to the movement to end sexual exploitation and trafficking and inspires us in her call to action.
