Virtual Discussion Series
Jasmine Grace - Human Sex Trafficking Survivor & Activist
Leaders in Lowell will be hosting a discussion with Jasmine Grace, a survivor of human sex trafficking, activist, author, and founder of "Bags of Hope Ministries" which works to help vulnerable women in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. This timely discussion will focus on Jasmine's story, her work, and what we can all do to help combat human trafficking.
"As a survivor of sex trafficking and drug addiction, Jasmine is an effective keynote speaker, panel participant and facilitator for trainings, workshops and groups. She has spoken on panels at the U.S Commission on Civil Rights in New Hampshire and at two side panels for members of the United Nations in New York.
In addition, Jasmine consults with healthcare professionals, law enforcement personnel, educators and nonprofit organizations. She advises on issues such as safe homes, program growth, curriculum development, survivor support and peer mentorship. She is Founder and Director of Bags of Hope Ministries, and Author of The Diary of Jasmine Grace. Trafficked. Recovered. Redeemed."
The Lincoln Project
Leaders in Lowell will be hosting a discussion with a member of staff for The Lincoln Project, a PAC founded by many notable republican strategists that aims to defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. This discussion will focus on the goals of The Lincoln Project, leadership, civic engagement, and much more.
Founded by prominent republican lawyer George Conway, strategists Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, Rick Wilson, Jennifer Horn, Ron Steslow, and Reed Galen, the Lincoln Project describes their goal to "hold accountable those who would violate their oaths to the Constitution and would put others before Americans". Their work is focused entirely on defeating Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. Politico has said their ad work has "successfully established itself as a squatter in Trump's mental space, thanks to several factors: members each boasting hundreds of thousands of social media followers, rapidly cut ads that respond to current events and a single-minded focus on buying airtime wherever Trump is most likely to be bingeing cable news that day, whether it's the D.C. market or his golf courses across the country." The group has established itself as an extremely large player in the upcoming election and our talk with them will give insight into their groundbreaking work and strategy.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Leaders in Lowell will not be hosting any physical, in person events for the foreseeable future.
We are currently not able to give firm date as to when we may resume in person events, however we will follow all advice from local, state, and national public health officials.
Leaders in Lowell is excited to announce our new "Virtual Discussion Series".
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot hold in-person events for the foreseeable future. In the meantime, we will be conducing a series of video interviews and discussions with prominent speakers and leaders. These discussion will be like "mini events" and will range in length from 20 to 40 minuets. These videos will be posted to our website and uploaded as podcast episodes to our new Lessons in Leadership podcast.
