Lisa Williams, founder and director of Living Water for Girls, will speak at Georgia Highlands College on April 25 at 2 p.m. on the Cartersville campus in the Student Center, as a part of GHC’s promotion of Women’s History. She will speak on her mission of helping girls and young women survivors of violence, street life, and human sex trafficking and exploitation. The event is free and open to the public.
“The Humanities Department and Students Without Borders is proud to be bringing back Lisa Williams to GHC for the fifth consecutive year. Lisa Williams is an international heroine in her innovative efforts to counter commercial child sex trafficking and one of the nation’s foremost experts on human sex trafficking. She has assisted and helped to secure and spare the lives of over 200 American girls and 14 boys. In 2015, the award-winning 2015 CNN Special Report ‘Children for Sale: The Fight to End Human Trafficking’ featured Circle of Friends and the Living Water for Girls program. Through this documentary, Lisa and the young ladies from the Living Water for Girls and Learning Resource Center programs spoke to people across the world about the perils of America’s domestic human trafficking epidemic, survivorship and their hope for a better tomorrow,” said Assistant Professor of Communication Alexandra MacMurdo Reiter.
