Personal Insight about Human Trafficking to Illustrate Important Connection Between Advocacy and Leadership
David Zach, the lead singer and songwriter for the U.S.-based rock band Remedy Drive, whose work focuses on abolishing human trafficking, will be speaking on how “Advocacy Goes with Leadership” at the University of Findlay on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. This free, public presentation will be held at the Winebrenner Building’s TLB Auditorium. Donations toward efforts to eradicate human trafficking will be accepted at the door.
Zach will share about his personal journey that has led him to be a part of covert operations internationally with the goal of ending sex slavery. His passion and advocacy have provided him with a leadership platform to challenge others to find their passions and to encourage them to see how leadership and advocacy correlate.
Remedy Drive has recorded two counter-trafficking albums and has donated more than $350,000 toward the anti-trafficking organization The Exodus Road. Zach and Remedy Drive’s core belief: “Justice is in the hands of the ordinary.”
