Your talk on Human Trafficking made our event very memorable and spread so much awareness to the members of Montclair State University. We believe the knowledge and experiences you shared were extremely eye opening and helped our campus community develop a better understanding of what Human Trafficking really is and the effect it has on the communities where we least expect it.

Gina Cavallo’s journey from victim to survivor is both inspirational and moving. She has worked hard over years to overcome being sold as a commodity to men and now shares her personal testimony of triumph over tribulation. I am honored to endorse Gina as a respected survivor leader who uses her powerful and inspiring story so that important changes can be made for the next generation.

I stand in total awe of Gina Cavallo’s faith and courage. Testifying before legislative committees on the record and in the public eye is a daunting experience even for veteran witnesses. I have no doubt that the bill was passed unanimously i both houses and signed by the Governor into law because of your courage to confront the memory of past experiences, and the strength of your trust in a benevolent God that is indispensable to every healing process.

We’ve had the opportunity to have Gina speak with our students on a number of occasions and in a variety of ways… Gina has been sensitive to the age and maturity of our students while still sharing with them critical information on the topic of Human Trafficking. She cares for their safety and wants them to understand the potential dangers that they face… I would certainly recommend connecting with Gina and allowing her the opportunity to share with your students or your group.

In the eight years I have been teaching about human trafficking at the college level, I have found that visits from Gina Cavallo have had a profound impact on students. Ms Cavallo has a unique gift of being able to connect to undergraduate students of diverse backgrounds. each time she has visited a class, students are fully engaged when she shares her story. Her ability to help all of us begin to understand the crippling fear of being trafficked and its psychological repercussions has inspired all of us to become committed abolitionists.

Gina’s moving story, and inspiring leadership has transformed our organization. We are not only now survivor informed, but have a powerful advocate who is just as comfortable speaking to elected officials as to school children, and changing lives as she does so.
