Laura Ng oversees external relations as one of the Executive Directors with Traffick Free, an anti-trafficking non-profit. In this role, she builds partnerships with like-minded groups and individuals, sponsors and supporters. Through this role, she has earned the trust and full support of key anti-trafficking advocates to pursue Traffick Free’s current initiatives: raising awareness, invoking advocacy and spreading education to fight human trafficking in the Chicagoland area. Working in these three areas, Traffick Free is fast becoming a major, collaborative player in the anti-trafficking movement. Laura serves in her capacity at Traffick Free, along with every team member, strictly as a volunteer. Laura is also the Senior Manager of Annual Events at Chicago Cares, overseeing the city’s two largest days of service that bring together thousands of volunteers to serve at Chicago Public Schools, as well as a variety of non-profit community partners across the city. This role allows her to go into each of the city’s vibrant neighborhoods and gain understanding of the complexities and social issues that must be addressed in order to transform individuals and their communities.
