A Conversation with Shani Bacy
In this podcast, Adam has a conversation with Shani Bacy of The Landing. The focus of our discussion is on the effects of ignoring racism in the anti-trafficking movement. We also talk about non-profit programs and cultural competency.
Shani Bacy, born and raised in Houston Texas, graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies. Currently, Shani serves as the Director of Strategic Programs for The Landing, a drop-in center for trafficked persons. Her primary responsibility is ensuring organizational effectiveness by providing leadership for the organization’s programmatic functions. Though the war against human-trafficking seems dauntless, Shani has proved herself to be an extremely formidable adversary.
