About Jeanette Lopez

Jeanette Lopez is a current graduate student at Florida International University pursuing her degree in Public Administration with a certificate in National Security Studies. She first heard about human trafficking in 2012 when she attended a conference held by Christine Caine, founder of the A21 Campaign. Ever since hearing Christine's testimony and how the organization is combating human trafficking, Jeanette knew it was her calling to go out and join the fight. After days of researching and learning about the facts, Jeanette came across organizations right in Miami that are fighting for the same cause and began to volunteer for them along with joining the South Florida Human Trafficking Task Force. Jeanette also volunteered with on-campus organizations that were hosting events to raise awareness at FIU. Noticing that there were many students passionate about making a difference in ending human trafficking but not enough awareness and action taking place throughout the year, Jeanette decided to start taking steps to reignite an on-campus organization dedicated to this cause. Jeanette believes that every single person can make a difference to help end modern day slavery.
