About the Lecture: After spending time on the ground in Ukraine as a guest of Ukrainian law enforcement, and after visiting bombed-out police stations and learning something of the trauma that a country endures when lawlessness takes over, she came to believe that one of the great unmet needs in Ukraine today is helping law enforcement recover from the invaders’ attempts to destroy it.

In this lecture, Mitzi will share information on what the invaders did, how this has encouraged human trafficking, and what it’s meant for the proliferation of the sale of irradiated scrap metal poached from the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. She’ll end with reasons why she believes the Ukrainians will prevail. For a hint, the reasons involve breadcrumbs, colorful nail polish, and a large yellow rose. (Are you doubting that breadcrumbs, nail polish, and a flower have anything to do with winning a war? Come to Mitzi’s lecture and see if she can convince you.) (Hint: she can and she will.)

About the Speaker: Mitzi Perdue is an anti-human trafficking advocate, a former rice farmer, past president of the 40,000-member American Agri-Women and a US Delegate to the United Nations Decade on Women Conference in Nairobi. In the 1990s, and early 2000s her nationally syndicated column, “The Environment and You,” was the most widely syndicated environmental column in the US. Recently she’s written a biography of Mark Victor Hansen, the Chicken Soup for the Soul guy. Hansen is in the Guinness Book of Worlds’ Records for selling half a billion books. Royalties for Mark Victor Hansen, Relentless will go to supporting Law Enforcement in Ukraine.
