Philip Calvert | Cybersex Trafficking: Your Phone and Saving Children’s Lives

Philip Calvert is known for his ability to mobilize communities to utilize their strengths to make a difference in their own context. The International Justice Mission of Canada is the Canadian partner of the world’s largest anti-slavery organization and Calvert is leading the charge on behalf of Alberta. He spends most of his time connecting with people who are passionate about seeing slavery end in our lifetime.

Prior to joining the International Justice Mission of Canada in 2015, he worked as a development officer at the University of Calgary within Arts and Libraries/Cultural Resources.

In his leisure time, Calvert loves to try new things and push himself physically through activities like road cycling, running and swimming, Aussie Rules Football and squash. Together with his wife and their two young children, passion for life and community is never in short supply.
