Senator Dush’s Mini-Series of interviews on Human Trafficking – Pastor Jo Lembo

Senator Dush introduced a three-pronged approach to dealing with Human Trafficking during the Anti-Human Trafficking conference at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown in October 2022.  This approach includes communications/education of Human Trafficking, rescuing victims and restoration/reintegration of body and soul of survivors.  This requires both funding and the legislation to support these goals.

Since January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, and therefore Senator Dush produced a series of interviews (four) that he will release, one per week, during January 2023.  Every Thursday, Senator Dush will have on his website a background discussion on Human Trafficking, a short bio of the Anti-Human Trafficking CEO that he is interviewing and a five-minute interview with this Human Trafficking expert.

This is the third in a series of four interviews with international experts in Human Trafficking.  Today, he is interviewing Pastor Jo Lembo, Director of Faith Initiatives and National Outreach for Shared Hope International.
