Speakers and Facilitators


Ineke van Buren

Keynote Speaker
Ineke is Projectmanager of the Center against Child Trafficking and Human Trafficking (CKM) in Friesland, Holland. The CKM is the NGO part of Fier where trafficking victims receive care and treatment.

‘Human trafficking or modern slavery is an abhorrent violation of human rights, and often rights of children. Being sold, forced to work for another person, in any form whatsoever, held captive, raped and /or sexually exploited leaves marks, scars often. We aim to reduce this violence, traders should be prosecuted and victims assisted in the best possible way and profiteers/buyers should be addressed. We can not do this alone, we need help from policy makers and the general public! Human trafficking should not exist in this world.’

Ineke is also coordinator of the Network Trafficking Friesland and team leader of the social workers for prostitutes at Fier (

She previously worked at the Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (COA) and the Probation Service, where she was involved with, among other, honor-related violence and domestic violence.


Dr Lois Lee

Keynote Speaker
Lois is a pioneer in saving the helpless children who are victims of human sex trafficking, blazing the trail for academics, researchers, law enforcement, social service providers and legislators. She is the founder and president of Children of the Night, the first established and only comprehensive sex trafficking program in North America. Since 1979, she has rescued over 10,000 American children from prostitution in the United States - that is more children than all of the other sex trafficking programs combined.

Since 1992, Children of the Night has operated a licensed shelter home for America’s child prostitutes ages 11-17. The Children of the Night home receives America’s child prostitutes from all over the United States and accommodates up to 24 residents at a time, providing an on-site school, individual case management, wholesome recreational outings, and a chance to experience a childhood free from sexual exploitation. The Children of the Night onsite school places 5 children a year in college and to date has placed over 100 children in colleges and universities throughout America.

In the last three decades, Lee has raised over $40 million to provide these crucial services. And her track record is impressive, Children of the Night graduates have gone on to become lawyers, executives and educators, among other professions.


Lorin LaFave

Keynote Speaker
Lorin will share her personal experience about internet grooming. Lorin, Breck Bednar's mother, is devastated by the loss of her beloved son Breck David LaFave Bednar. He was a kind, well-liked, intelligent, thoughtful, independent, resourceful, responsible boy with a good sense of humour and a thirst for knowledge. Breck was a dedicated student at St. Bede's School in Redhill and was extremely gifted in computing, electronics, and engineering.

Breck had a great passion for the possibilities offered by innovations in computing. In his memory the Breck Bednar Memorial Foundation would like to encourage other young people with similar passions. The purpose of this foundation is to support computer education for young people, including the responsible use of technology.
