This week's events with three men arraigned on sex trafficking charges in Gorham, Maine bring the stark reality of horrific acts of abuse and slavery in your backyard. Stephanie Henry knows these stories well as she has lived them.
Writer, author, speaker and activist for women's empowerment issues in the United States and across the globe, Stephanie went from being a lifeless and hopeless soul to successful beyond imagination. This success is found in her personal life as a mother of three, her business life as an activist raising awareness for numerous causes and her personal sense of purpose.
Stephanie Henry will be the 'keynote' address at the NOT HERE conference www.not-here.me on April 10th outside of Portland and Lewiston, Maine sharing her stories, her advice/warnings and power to make a difference. Henry's organization Activism for Empowerment is a supporter of the conference. Henry is also featured in a lifetime documentary about human trafficking, which will have its debut at the conference and similar conferences across the United States this Spring.
She will be touring in Maine starting April 8th through April 12th
"Our children are not only our responsibility but our future. Keeping them safe is my number one passion," says Henry.
Stephanie Henry has overcome tremendous adversity, which has in turn birthed her passion to help women and children rise from pain to power. She believes "passion is something born from loss" and wholly embraces hers. Henry was an I-35 nomad until she found home in McKinney, Texas in 1997. Like many other women who've suffered adverse life experiences, Stephanie is a survivor.
