This month, President Barack Obama announced his intent to appoint Minh Dang to be on the United State Advisory Council on Human Trafficking.
Minh Dang, a resident of San Jose, CA, currently serves as the Executive Director for Don’t Sell Bodies, which advocates on behalf of survivors of modern day slavery.
By sharing her own story of growing up in San Jose and forced in sex slavery in the Bay Area, Minh has worked to combat child abuse and human trafficking in the United States through direct service, community organizing, and political advocacy. Minh also provides technical assistance and organizational consulting to local, state, and national service providers and government agencies. Recently, Minh helped launch the U.S. Senate Caucus to End Human Trafficking.
