TEDx Presentation: The Space Between Where you Were and Who you are Katrina Owens is a victim’s advocate and expert speaker on the commercial sexual exploitation of children. As a mentor and advocate, she lends her ear and voice to the youth, who for the most part, remain stereotyped and misunderstood.
Her insight has proven invaluable to government entities, law enforcement, social service agencies, nonprofits, juvenile court systems, mental healthcare providers and families, to inform treatment services, facilitate training and create awareness.
Appearing regularly as a speaker and panelist, Owens participates in conferences, workshops and training seminars. She has appeared in the Washington Times, MTV- U, ECPAT (End Child Prostitution Pornography and Trafficking), Public Broadcasting Atlanta and Peachtree TV, among other outlets.
Having worked with organizations including Georgia Care Connection, Street GRACE, Wellspring Living, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Junior League of Atlanta and Rachel Lloyd of GEMS, she is committed to giving a voice to the voiceless.
