Our Renew Women's Conference in the fall was very well received! Many people requested to hear more from the speakers who were here so we are thrilled to begin a series of speakers. The first in our series of speakers will be Deanne Lawson. Deanne will be speaking on Human Trafficking Awareness and she will share:
Deanne Lawson is the Executive Director and Founder of Inner Beauty Center. Deanne has a passion for
women who are marginalized by sexual exploitation. An RN since 1988, she has worked primarily in
women’s health in the hospital setting and is currently employed as an RN at a local hospital. Mid 2011 her world was rocked by a woman who was a sex trafficking victim brought to Milwaukee from out of state. Not knowing the dangers or even the definition of human trafficking she assisted this woman to a safe place and eventually back to her home state. That began the journey to today’s 501(c)(3) public
charity – Inner Beauty Center. Deanne began presenting on human trafficking in 2014 and has spoken inthe following settings including: several hospital groups, training offered through the Milwaukee Joint Human Trafficking Taskforce, many church settings and a variety of small groups. Education on human trafficking will help bring restoration to victims and prevention of possible victimization in the future to
children, youth and adults. Deanne is also a mother of 3 adult children and a wife to retired pastor –Grant. She finds gardening and singing to be “therapy.” Deanne is down to earth and compassionate and definitely finds helping people most rewarding. Deanne has presented in the healthcare setting to ER Physicians & RN’s, Dieticians, OB/GYN MD’s and RN’s, Women’s & Youth Groups in churches, & Sunday morning service presentations. She has also presented at conferences to youth on awareness.
