ABOUT YOUR HOST
Angie Henderson, Ph.D.
LEAD DATA ANALYST, TRAINING COORDINATOR, AND CO-FOUNDER
Megan and I began working together following the 2015 University of Northern Colorado Empathy Week, collaborating on research projects that would benefit her organization. In 2018, we co-founded Avery Research & Consulting, and in 2020 we've merged the two organizations as The Avery Center. The Avery Center’s commitment to centering survivor voices and assuring that solid data informs the organization’s practices truly set this organization apart. Many organizations provide direct services, focus on data analysis, or focus on survivor leadership; The Avery Center combines all three.
"Angie and Megan take the complex social issues facing our society today and translate them into bite-sized chunks for the rest of us. Their passion, vision and perspective is lively, insightful, professional and applicable. As a leader in the anti-trafficking work of our area, I can always count on them to bring timely answers to challenging problems, answers that invite me to think differently and with a clarity I'd not yet known. We would not be where we are in our work today without Angie and Megan."
Chris Bruno, LPC
"The Avery Center is a wonderful organisation, right at the forefront of the fight against exploitation in the USA. Their approach, research, and commitment to building dedicated partnerships allows us to work together and build innovative projects powered by data and technology. Through global relationships, we can all achieve more than the sum of our parts."
Chief Executive, STOP THE TRAFFIK
"Breaking the phases into the categories of boyfriend pimp, CEO pimp, and CSE is a breakdown I would have never thought to apply but seems really crucial to our understanding. That has given me a lot of pause. This proves the importance of having individuals with lived [experience] as active participants (and ideally leaders) of the work...there is a tremendous amount of work to be done to develop more refined, nuanced, and targeted information."
