On November 4th, 2019 Eyes Open International Spokesperson Harold D’Souza attended the SAFE 2019 Conference as a keynote speaker. The SAFE Conference hosted leaders in the fight against human trafficking from over 70 different nations around the world and 40 states.
Dr. Kalyani Gopal, a clinical psychologist and the founder of the SAFE Coalition for Human Rights, explained in a press release that the theme of this year’s conference was enhancing collaboration among social service agencies and socially conscious business leaders in Chicago and other major metropolitan areas.
This was a life changing experience for two victims who attended such an event for the first time. Both were of Indian origin and currently living in America. EOI has supported both victims in their recovery efforts, and seeks to empower them to become survivor advocates themselves.
