Human trafficking: Inside look at the Jeffrey Epstein case

February 1, 2022

During National Sex Trafficking Prevention Month, the Community Foundation of Broward hosted a discussion with the Broward attorney seeking justice for victims of one of the world’s most high-profile trafficking cases.

Sigrid McCawley is a seasoned litigator, most known for being the lead attorney on behalf of victims in the Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficking case.

She has appeared on 60 Minutes, CNN and Fox. Sigrid is the attorney for Virginia Giuffre, who filed a lawsuit against Britain’s Prince Andrew arguing that he sexually abused Virginia when she was 17.

At the Community Foundation’s Jan. 28 virtual “Food for Thought” event for Fundholders, Legacy Society members and other Foundation supporters, Sigrid shared insights about the case involving Epstein and Prince Andrew as well as the proliferation of sex trafficking in South Florida and beyond.

“This is happening right now, in front of our eyes,” Sigrid said. “We need to work as a community to stop it.”
