R.N., Anti-Trafficking Activist,
Mother of a Survivor
Ms. Zito, the mother of a trafficking victim who was kidnapped from a grocery store parking lot, returns to the STOP Human Trafficking conference to follow-up on her previous appearance at CSU, Chico. She has joined with a group of other mothers to found an organization, Run for Courage, that raises funds and awareness concerning the problem of human trafficking, including funds for services for trafficking victims. She tells of her daughter’s eight-day disappearance, during which her daughter was advertised for sex on Craig’s List. After her daughter was rescued, Ms. Zito began to do research about sex trafficking, which led to her activism to educate the public about human trafficking and to make services available to victims and their families.
