The Demand Project is a local nonprofit organization that works to prevent sex-trafficking, prosecute offenders, and rescue and restore the lives of the victims. Co-Founder and CEO, Kristin Weis, is one of nine individuals nationally who have been appointed to work with The White House as a member of the Public-Private Partnerships Advisory Council to End Human Trafficking. This opportunity will allow Kristin to work with lawmakers to get to the root of the demand side of human trafficking, and shine a light on the issues that enable the consumers as well as the traffickers and dealers themselves.
