Welcome to our blog! This blog will be focusing on what we are doing, including appearances, speaking engagements, and accomplishments towards ending human trafficking.
This blog will be co-written between myself, Representative Lynne Hix-DiSanto, and trafficking survivor Sally Richardson. So, I’ll start by sharing a little about myself. I live in Rapid City, South Dakota and have three sons. I serve in the South Dakota State house as a representative from the district that covers Rapid City and Box Elder. I was a victim of domestic violence and have a heart for women’s issues including stalking, physical/ mental abuse and human trafficking.
I was fortunate to be introduced to Sally last year and knew that we needed to unite on addressing this very important issue in America. I call her my sister and we use our differing strengths and backgrounds to work together. Bringing awareness, education and helping people who are caught up in human trafficking find a way out and start a new life is our mission!
