The Power Lunch Presented by Leadership Montgomery 

Formerly Known As Lunch With Leaders

Featuring: TaJuan McCarty, Founder of The WellHouse


"Human Trafficking In Our Own Backyard"

April 20, 2016- Noon- 1 pm

TaJuan McCarty is the Founder of The WellHouse, a nonprofit, faith-based and Christ-centered agency dedicated to rescuing women from sexual exploitation/human trafficking. She has experience in social work, community outreach, and as a consultant on women’s issues. Her professional experience includes leadership positions in which she has assisted women ex-offenders re-enter society; helped implement Alabama’s first program devoted to helping chronically homeless, severely mentally ill women and as a social worker for the Alabama Department of Human Resources. She holds Master degrees in Public Health and Public Administration, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Social Work from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

TaJuan is uniquely qualified to be a forerunner in the fight against trafficking, as she understands victims situations too well. At 15, she was sexually exploited by her “boyfriend-turned-pimp”. She was trafficked to Birmingham so many times, it became her home. Her many experiences make her a passionate advocate for victims of sexual exploitation and human trafficking.

TaJuan was recognized as one of The Top 20 Women Who Make a Difference in Birmingham and accepted The FBI Director's Community Leadership Award on behalf of The WellHouse, due to her efforts to fight human trafficking. TaJuan will share her story and raise awareness about the atrocity of human trafficking taking place right here in our own backyard and how to prevent this crime.
