Show 161…Where Does Human Trafficking Happen? Kristin Deal


My guest this week, Kristin Deal, has just returned from Goa, India where she was involved in international work with trafficking.  India and other South East Asian countries are probably where you and I both imagine most human trafficking to take place.  However, Kristin is going to be telling us about what goes on in our own backyard, sometimes right underneath our noses.  Kristin is a born and bred Texan from Fort Worth, right down the road from me in Dallas.  She received her Masters in Social Work through the University of Texas at Arlington.  She has been married to her husband Brad for almost 2 years now and enjoys hearing his stories of being a middle school teacher.  They have one child named Burger, their rescue dog.  Kristin currently works at Catholic Charities Fort Worth as a Case Manager and Outreach Worker specifically helping refugees and victims of trafficking.  Join me to hear this young woman’s passion for combating injustice and giving hope and voice to the vulnerable in her community.

Today I’m going to be yabbering on about overdoing the formal teaching and killing the joy, New York, New York, food, entertainment and fun, so have a sit down, take a sip of your tea or coffee and join me in a place where we can enjoy our weekly hour together.
