Human trafficking impacts millions of adults and youth globally, regardless of religion, culture, race, or ethnicity. Unfortunately, there are limited resources on how to support survivors of various identities. Please join us for a presentation by American University student Mei Tomko that will give a brief introduction to the impact of trafficking on Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) and Indigenous peoples and ways to support survivors through intercultural and religious-specific lenses.
Mei Tomko is an International Relations major at American University in Washington, DC, pursuing a combined BA/MA degree in Ethics, Peace, and Human Rights. She strives to address human rights abuses through grassroots organizing, cross-cultural communication, and intersectional advocacy. Mei is also extremely passionate about AAPI advocacy, specifically transracial adoptee issues, as a transracial Chinese adoptee herself. These passions, coupled with previous experiences with anti-sex trafficking organizations, community volunteering, and personal identity development, have catalyzed her dedication to focusing on human rights and anti-trafficking work.
