Joel Davis was the only United States Youth Representative to attend the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in London this summer. When he graduated from Port Charlotte High School in 2013, Davis skipped college for a year to intern for Physicians for Human Rights, a non-profit organization. This would introduce him to the issue of sexual violence in combat.
Since then, he has seen both how “on the ground” organizations address sexual violence in combat and what it looks like when discussed on a global stage. Davis talks with us about his year exploring the issue and the United States’ role in the conversation.
