Evelyn Chumbow is a survivor of labor trafficking and an anti-trafficking activist. For seven years, she lived in constant fear and worked day and night for her trafficker, never receiving a dime. After years of captivity, she finally escaped. She enrolled in GED courses and then community college and studied Homeland Security at the University of Maryland. Today, Ms. Chumbow is an activist against modern-day slavery as a Survivor Consultant for Humanity United and is a project assistant at the law firm of Baker & McKenzie LLP.
“I was inspired to be part of this movement because I was once a child slave myself. My goal is to help inform people all over the world that modern-day slavery is still going on around us.”
