Gilbert Recognized

Shelley Gilbert, Coordinator of Social Work Services for Legal Aid Windsor (LAW), is in Ottawa this week, receiving a Certificate of Merit from the Ottawa Police for her work in human trafficking. 

Gilbert co-chairs the LAW's Windsor Essex Anti-Human Trafficking Action Group, and is responsible for an impactful 2011 campaign that raised awareness of the issue through stark, black and white roadside billboards, posters and pamphlets which asserted "Human Trafficking. It’s in our neighbourhood". The initiative received attention from across North America.
