Our president had the opportunity to travel to Compton, CA and spend time with the Chief Executives from two of our partner organizations. Tera Hilliard of Forgotten Children and Elena Shahnaian of Two Wings are amazing leaders that are working on the front lines in the battle against human trafficking in our country.
January is Human Trafficking Prevention Month and it was quite fitting for him to have the opportunity to hear directly from these ladies regarding the issues, challenges and opportunities they are facing in the greater Los Angeles area. He was very encouraged to hear about the wonderful partnerships they have formed with local law enforcement, politicians, corrections officials, for-profit companies and other non-profits like themselves to make a difference in transforming lives and communities.
