Previously, John served as the US Ambassador-at-Large to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons for the US Department of State. John’s career has been spent at the intersection of law, policy and human rights — as a federal prosecutor, founding director of the Human Trafficking Institute, director of the International Justice Mission in Chennai, India, and as Ambassador. This includes strategy, compliance, internal investigations, and litigation in the area of ESG and supply chains, specifically international and domestic human trafficking.

John has received numerous honors and commendations, including having been named a “Prosecutor of the Year” and receiving the David Alred Award for exceptional contributions to civil rights. His work caused the former head of the FBI’s human trafficking program to call him “every trafficker’s worst nightmare.”

Helen has been working in the field of counter human trafficking and exploitation since 1999.  Helen believes in movement building and after witnessing of the lack of a coordinated response to human trafficking she founded the Chab Dai (which means ‘joining hands’ in Khmer) Coalition in 2005 in Cambodia where she lived and worked for 20 years.
