Light the Way

A Human Trafficking Education & Awareness Event

Every 30 seconds another person becomes a victim of human trafficking. To bring greater public attention to this epidemic, the Junior League of Daytona Beach has annually hosted the Light the Way event, an afternoon educational symposium and luncheon, on the problem of human trafficking.


This event was initially held in 2015, and again in 2017, at the Hilton Daytona Beach Resort.

The 2017 speakers featured a prominent panel of community leaders including:

  • Jose Ramirez, Special Agent, Florida Department of Law Enforcement
  • Ashley Oramas, Victim Specialist Human Trafficking Unit, Office of the State Attorney
  • Terry Pettengill, Shared Hope International Ambassador
  • Jamie Rosseland, a survivor of human trafficking


There are many other opportunities throughout the year to learn more about the problem of human trafficking. See the League’s Human Trafficking Initiative for more information.
