Book Talk with alpha Kappa Delta Phi at GMU

IMG_1574.JPGDr. Mehlman-Orozco had a productive book talk, teaching the ladies of alpha Kappa Delta Phi at GMU on how to identify the red flags of human trafficking. Behind the headlines, the true life stories of human trafficking victimizations will beggar belief. #aKDPhi Sisters are now equipped with the fundamental knowledge needed to become a modern day abolitionist.

“Thank you so much for your presentation yesterday, we all learned a lot and are very happy we were able to meet you and hear more about your book.

I started reading your book last night and it was so hard to force myself to stop to go to sleep, I am really glad we have the break now so that I can spend more time reading it!”
