Robin Rossmanith is a mom, a wife, a daughter and an abolitionist. Jolted by the facts she learned when a friend took a job as a case worker for women rescued from human trafficking, Robin educated herself, got involved in the issue and searched for ways to make a difference.
As a mother, she was disturbed to hear about the atrocities that were common to the world of human trafficking. Even though her children were still elementary school aged and younger at the time, she began devoting increasing amounts of time and energy to finding ways to help in the fight against modern day slavery.
After several years of being a volunteer with numerous anti-human trafficking organizations in Northeast Florida, Robin was looking for a way to reach and influence even more people. In March 2010, Robin attended a training seminar to learn about creating websites. While there, the ideas that became Shop To Stop Slavery went from being dreams to something concrete. Robin’s website Shop To Stop Slavery exists to educate consumers and showcase retailers who are committed to selling only ethically produced goods.
Robin is a college-educated professional with a degree in Psychology and has a variety of experience working with youth, women and other groups. Her extensive work and volunteer experience has been primarily with non-profits and social justice groups. She has been presenting to groups for almost 20 years.
Married to Tom for almost 15 years, Robin is the proud mother of 3 socially conscious children aged 12, 9 and 8. As a family they are committed to conducting their lives with a focus on social justice.
