Katie Bergman is the Director of Communications and Operations for the Set Free Movement, an international non-profit organization intervening in human trafficking and modern slavery. Her previous professional experiences included building a livelihoods program for people at risk of exploitation in rural Cambodia, mobilizing the grassroots abolitionist movement in San Francisco, and working with vulnerable youth both in rural Mexico and in the inner-city of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Katie’s first book, When Justice Just Is (2015) starts a compelling conversation about the trials and triumphs of seeking justice. In 2017, she co-wrote Urban Shalom: Restoring Hope and Justice to Communities Affected by Modern Slavery, which explores the root causes of human trafficking and provides practical engagement strategies for faith communities.
With her passion for justice and for cultivating self-compassion in both individuals and organizations, Katie frequently speaks at conferences, classrooms, churches, and other venues across North America. Click here if you're interested in bringing her in to speak at your organization or event.
Katie practices self-care through outdoor adventures, creative projects, comedy, and fitness. In her free time, she invests in her community wherever possible and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation. Most importantly, she spends as much time with her friends and family as she can, especially her favourite (and only) niece.
In her vocation and as an avid traveler, Katie has lived in, served, and explored nearly thirty countries. Currently, she lives in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.
"Compassion is fundamental to the human experience, but let's not confuse it with martyrdom."
