Oikocredit USA Summit 2013: Investing in People, Empowering Communities

Calling all Oikocredit USA investors and friends!

JUST ANNOUNCED! Timothy Bradley will be joining the Summit as our keynote speaker!

Tim Bradley’s journey into the world of human trafficking began in prayer with a spiritual “breaking of his heart” for its victims. This faith perspective, combined with his diverse background in the areas of education, behavioral science, conflict, and the emergency services, have since influenced his holistic approach to anti-trafficking.

Nationally, Tim has participated in anti-trafficking efforts in the Atlanta metropolitan area, and is a selected member of the American Psychological Association’s Task Force on Trafficking of Women and Girls’ Cadre of Experts. Internationally, he has conducted anti-trafficking efforts in some of the most renowned locations in the world, to include Cambodia, Thailand, and India.

His anti-trafficking efforts have been featured in the media, his writings on the issue have been published, and he frequently addresses faith-based and secular organizations throughout the region.
