Panelist: Kwami P. Adoboe-Herrera, BS

Kwami P. Adoboe-Herrera

Kwami Adoboe-Herrera is a speaker, consultant, and anti-trafficking advocate. As a survivor, he understands the tragic impact of human trafficking all around us. His lived experience shaped his career and interests, which led him to advocate for policies that assist victims as they navigate life after being trafficked. Break the Chain was a documentary that featured Kwami. The film shows how human trafficking goes unnoticed in our own backyards. Break the Chain was created to provide a reliable and educational entertainment resource for use in training and community awareness events across the United States. Kwami is currently a Board member of Not for Sale: One Step at a Time, an organization that raises awareness and provides hope to communities throughout Ohio, America, and the world. President Trump appointed Kwami to the United States Advisory Council on Human Trafficking on December 22, 2020. The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (JVTA), enacted on May 29, 2015, established the United States Advisory Council on Human Trafficking, which provides a formal platform for trafficking survivors to advise and make recommendations on federal anti-trafficking policies to the President's Inter-agency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (PITF). Kwami partnership Blue Campaign, the Federal government, NGOs and service providers as a consultant. 

Kwami's goals are to raise awareness, reduce the risk of victimization, educate members of the government and the general public, and advocate for victim protection and wellness. Kwami earned a Bachelor of Science in Education from Walsh University. His ultimate goal is to work for the federal government, rescuing victims from human traffickers. I believe that with God's assistance, we will be able to defeat this heinous crime against human life.
