Weekly readers first met Aaron Cohen in a 2007 article detailing his escapades to rescue victims of labor and sexual slavery. Subsequent web and print articles kept readers updated, and offered greater detail than can be afforded here, on the (then) Costa Mesa resident: his work with California anti-trafficking actions, local humanitarian awards received and the release of his book, co-authored by Christine Buckley.
Cohen now resides in Laguna Niguel. Part time. As a soldier in the war against human trafficking, his travels make him somewhat a global transient, with a local domicile to hang his trademark black hat during his brief times of reprieve. Cohen's sole focus since 2002 has been the antislavery movement. Until now.
Now, Cohen is focusing his energies on Strike Debt, a debt resistance campaign and offshoot of Occupy Wall Street.
