Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the appointment by the White House of Esta Soler of San Francisco, California to serve on the Public-Private Partnership Advisory Council to End Human Trafficking following the Speaker’s recommendation.
“The persistent scourge of human trafficking remains a challenge to the conscience of the world,” said Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “Whether as a brilliant social worker or founder of Futures Without Violence, Esta Soler has been on the front lines in the fight to protect women and families from violence and abuse for nearly 50 years. From promoting lifesaving criminal justice reform that protects the victims of domestic violence to helping pass the landmark Violence Against Women Act, Esta’s tireless, committed energy and advocacy have been instrumental in delivering transformative progress for American women. It was an honor to recommend Esta for appointment to the Public-Private Partnership Advisory Council to End Human Trafficking where her vision and persistent, dissatisfied leadership will be critical to advancing bold solutions to end human trafficking once and for all.”
Created by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2017, the Public-Private Partnership Advisory Council to End Human Trafficking works to review federal policies and initiatives designed to combat human trafficking and provide advice and recommendations to address the continuing threat. Members of the Advisory Council are appointed to serve a two-year term.
