This week #DignityHealth released a Shared Learnings Manual to share information and resources from the #HumanTraffickingResponse Program. If you are looking to implement a similar program in your healthcare system, please be sure to include survivor speakers in your trainings. Thank you again @iamleahrogers for sharing your expertise with nursing staff in East Valley AZ!

Last night Dignity Health highlighted #JosieFeemster at the #HumankindnessGala in San Francisco. Josie is a survivor of sex trafficking, subject matter expert and leader in the anti-trafficking field; also a wife, a mother, and an #everydayhero. Thank you Josie & Ron for joining us! #hellohumankindness #survivorleadership

Flew over Lake Michigan on my way back to the west coast. Very peaceful after hectic meetings in D.C. #AdvocacyMatters #HTResponse #VictimServices #SurvivorEmpowerment #TraumaInformed #VictimCentered

I continue to be educated and inspired by books written by survivors of labor and sex trafficking. "The Diary of Jasmine Grace" by Jasmine Grace Marino is no different. This book sheds new light on the complex dynamics of sex trafficking, particularly on "bottom girls". As a "bottom", Jasmine suffered - physically and emotionally. I feel changed after reading this book, and I know you will too. If you seek to better understand sex trafficking, including ways to care for victims and the connection between PTSD and addiction, then you must read this book. P.S. This might be my most favorite book cover! #JasmineGraceMarino #sextrafficking

So excited Ben was able to join me this year at the #SedonaForum. We hiked up to the Power Vortex! #SedonaAZ #mccaininstitute #HTcouncil

"As a result of my own experience, I can say to you, 'Relax and trust God. You don’t need to know how, just believe Him and He will show up on your behalf and make you shine in the face of your adversaries.'" -Bukola Oriola, survivor of human trafficking and author of A Living Label: Inspirational Memoir and Guide @bukolaoriola #humantrafficking

Absolutely amazing dynamic speaker. Thank you #LeahRogers for sharing your story and educating perinatal healthcare staff on the dynamics of sex trafficking, red flags in the healthcare setting, and ways to approach potential victims. #GameOver #DignityHealth #hellohumankindness

I'm so grateful I was able to spend a few days with my sister and nephew last week - and visit lots of family. Here's a photo of us together in my #punjammies. #siblings

So glad to finally be home and resting with Ben and Jackie. 🐾 #LazyWeekend

Last night's event with CAST and Thorn was a great success! We raised awareness about #humantrafficking and the importance of services for victims and vulnerable populations. Stopping by the #CecilHotel for a #truecrimegarage shoutout before heading back home. #truecrimepodcasts #hotelcecil

Lots of great information and resources at the Freedom Network Conference today. Really glad I was able to represent Dignity Health and share about the success of our #HumanTrafficking Response Program. #fnconference #hellohumankindness
