Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody announced on Monday that former University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow will be the keynote speaker for the virtual 2020 Annual Human Trafficking Summit.
A two-time college football national champion and Heisman Trophy winner, Tebow will be giving the keynote address during the launch of the summit. The summit will also include an opening address from Moody, more than 15 hours of presentations by speakers from across Florida and the nation and much more.
“I am thrilled to have fellow Gator Tim Tebow as our keynote speaker for this year’s record-breaking Human Trafficking Summit. I commend his selfless work through the Tim Tebow Foundation to bring awareness to this horrific crime. His passion to serve and save children from this abuse will change lives. I’m excited for our registrants to hear about the great work his foundation is doing and look forward to the launch of our Summit on Oct. 6,” Moody said on Monday.
“Human trafficking is the darkest of evils and it is my heart to rally every individual, every resource, and every network to come together to create more impact in prevention, rescue, and healing…but, ultimately, to end human trafficking,” Tebow said.
“As my foundation and I elevate our voice and our effort in the fight against human trafficking, I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the state of Florida’s Human Trafficking Summit to stand on the line with others fighting this fight,” Tebow added.
Established in 2010, the mission of the Tim Tebow Foundation is to “bring Faith, Hope, and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need” and it “works to put an end to human trafficking, as well as other initiatives designed to make the lives of children better.”
The summit will launch on Oct. 6 and will be available to access online for 18 months. The Attorney General’s Office, along with the Statewide Council on Human Trafficking, the Florida Department of Children and Families, the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, the Florida Department of Health, the University of Central Florida, the Florida Alliance to End Human Trafficking and the Junior Leagues of Florida State Public Affairs Committee are hosting the 2020 Human Trafficking Summit.
