Richard Lui

Richard Lui is a thought leader at the intersection of media, social impact, and storytelling. As a journalist, he first engaged the anti-human trafficking community through stories. His first was an undercover report on underground, underage brothels broadcast on CNN International. Most recently, Mr. Lui anchored an MSNBC cable network segment on supply chain labor slavery. He also leverages his voice outside of journalism, taking his activism to universities, national conventions, businesses, and policy-making bodies domestic and foreign.

“It is important to understand the complexity and sensitivities behind human trafficking stories, and then tell them in understandable ways and in ways that help survivors. One way to achieve that is for storytellers to take on strategic roles in anti-modern slavery organizations as ambassadors, board members, or as abolitionists.”
