Thank you, Marti MacGibbon, for taking the time to provide the inspiration, insights and guidance on yesterday’s virtual presentation on human trafficking and addiction.

Marti MacGibbon spoke virtually at University of California San Diego’s 2021 Human Trafficking Awareness Event. She’s a phenomenal speaker, charming the audience with her wit and candor. Marti uses her comedic skills and warm spirit to deliver information about the tragedy of human trafficking and triumph of survivorship in a palatable and hope-inspiring way. I highly recommend Marti for a speaking engagement.
