Honored to have met @NadiaMuradBasee at yesterday’s @UNODC 2016 Global #humantrafficking rpt launch TY @murad_ismael #EndHumanTrafficking

 

It was truly a privilege and honor to meet Nadia Murad, Yazidi survivor of genocide & UNODC Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking and recent Vaclav Havel Prize and Sakharov Prize Winner, at yesterday’s launch of UNODC’s 2016 Global Report on Trafficking in Persons. Last week, I had the honor of meeting with Fatou Bensouda, Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the week before that, with Mausi Segun, Senior Researcher on Nigeria at Human Rights Watch. Three powerful, strong women giving voice to those not able to speak up. A great way to close out 2016!!
