“doTERRA is committed to eradicating human trafficking through our daily business operations and philanthropic initiatives, so we appreciate the opportunity to stand with Sam and Kacie Malouf in bringing more attention to this issue through the summit,” said David Stirling, founding executive and CEO. “When we founded doTERRA, we recognized a number of potential problems in the natural products supply chain, including the risks for labor trafficking. As we focused on this issue, we quickly came to realize the shocking prevalence of trafficking throughout so many industries in every corner of the world. Accordingly, eradicating trafficking became a core focus for our company and doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation.”

Stirling added, “Events like this summit continue to bring needed attention to this criminal activity, while also shining light on critical support and resources for helping and healing survivors.”
