Our Upcoming 2016 Activist Vision Trip
Our 2016 Activist Vision Trip will take place September 19th-26th 2016, beginning in Bangkok, continuing to Chiang Mai and ending in Chiang Rai where we will visit the SOLD Resource Centers. In addition to learning about the complex historical, social, and economic layers of the human trafficking and sex trade industry, participants will meet with a few of SOLD’s partner organizations also doing impactful work in these fields as well as some of the SOLD staff and scholarship students.
This year’s trip will be co-led by Rachel Goble, President of SOLD, Brian White, SOLD’s Los Angeles representative and veteran Vision Trip leader, and Shannon Griesser, SOLD’s Boston representative. Shannon, our newest trip leader, became a passionate SOLD supporter after her experience on the 2015 Vision Trip inspired her to get more involved with the organization. Since then, Shannon worked to secure a grant for the new SOLD Resource Center in Chiang Rai and remains a vocal advocate for the cause.
We are structuring this experience to be intentional, educational and engaging. If you are someone who is inspired, open-minded and interested in learning more about human trafficking and SOLD’s work in prevention, we’d love to have you join us!
