IJM’s Lead Advocacy Director for Colorado, Camerron Resener, joins host Seth Daire to discuss The End Modern Slavery Initiative Act (EMSI) which passed as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2017 (NDAA) in December 2016. The law authorizes funding for a non-profit, grant-making foundation in the District of Columbia that will fund anti-trafficking programs and projects outside the United States.
