Laurie Swink is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Selah Freedom, the nation’s leading anti-sex trafficking organization, that provides Awareness, Prevention, Outreach, and Residential services. Laurie has a Bachelor’s degree in Special Education and has 30+ years teaching 1st-12th grade.  In 2011, Laurie’s heart was moved to establish a residential home when she realized a survivor coming out of sex trafficking was only at the beginning of their journey not the end.  She oversees the Selah Freedom programming while training other organizations to build a sustainable and safe residential program for sex trafficking survivors. Laurie considers her work with the survivors to be a privilege and an honor.
