Michigan State Senator Judy Emmons made headlines recently for Co-Chairing the 2016 NFWL Human Trafficking Summit!
“‘This summit’s goal was to open the eyes of elected women to the atrocities of human trafficking,’ said Emmons, R-Sheridan. ‘It exposed the immediacy of this crisis in America: hiding in plain sight in the pews at church, in the grocery stores and even in our own neighborhoods.’
Emmons is in her second term in the Michigan Senate, where she serves on the Senate Economic Development and International Investment Committee; the Senate Elections and Government Reform Committee; as vice-chair of the Senate Veterans, Military Affairs and Homeland Security Committee; and as chair of the Senate Families, Seniors and Human Services Committee. She also serves as the chair of the statewide Senate GOP Women Matter training and education program. Emmons is the Senate point-person on the issue of human trafficking. In this role, she has helped pass bipartisan legislation to protect against trafficking and hosted a series of educational forums on human trafficking throughout the state.
For her work, Emmons has repeatedly been honored as a leader in the fight against human trafficking, recently with the Michigan Liberator of the Year Award and the Michigan Council of Professional Investigators’ Pinnacle Award.”
