Program Assistant, Buffett-McCain Institute Initiative to Combat Modern Slavery

Sarah Southey is the Program Assistant for the Buffett-McCain Institute Initiative to Combat Modern Slavery. In this role, she works to combat forced labour in the agricultural sector in Texas. The objective of this multi-disciplinary pilot program is to test, and then replicate, a programme that ends trafficker impunity, secures justice for victims, immunizes the agricultural supply chain, and enhances anti-trafficking stakeholder collaboration.

Before joining the Buffett-McCain Initiative, Sarah interned at Centro de los Derechos del Migrante (CDM) in Mexico City. At CDM, she conducted community outreach and assisted in labour organizing efforts. While living in Mexico City, Sarah also worked with a refugee aid organization in their Community Integration Program, helping people seeking asylum from Central America find employment.
