Review for National Womens Coalition Against Violence & Exploitation, Vancouver, WA, USA
We have a DREAM!
I was raped on Halloween in 1992 in Denver, Colorado but totally moved on forgetting the power I had and should have used to report the co-worker that raped me. Fast forward years of working with and for nonprofits in Los Angeles it wasn't until moving to Vancouver, WA that totally made me appreciate my life.
In 2008 I was asked to represent a family of a missing 3-year-old child. Then in 2009 I met a 17 year old human trafficked survivor. Then later that year our efforts searching for a missing 14 year old black girl from Portland resulted in learn she was raped, beaten, shot to death and buried in two plastic bags by at 16 year old gang member that turned my vision of this world on its axel. I created a conference and program in 2009 that turned into a new lifetime dream...a world without violence and human trafficking.
In 2012 a few of us took the program and decided to create a 501(c)(3) national nonprofit called the National Women's Coalition Against Violence & Exploitation (NWCAVE). Today we are licensed in Washington, Oregon and California. Have helped in over 30 missing persons cases. Have conducted annual conferences every January again violence and exploitation. Launched a national training institute. Have presented at over 400 conferences, schools, and community groups (on Child Safety, Internet Safety, Bullying, Abduction/Stranger Danger, Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking). Produced a film on human trafficking. Formed a national journalism and humanitarian awards. And just this summer opened our first office and community resource center. All of this since 2008 with all volunteers and no staff and a very small budget.
We have come full circle with dedication, love and passion to keep kids safe, prevent abductions and kidnappings, empower women and girls and provide services that benefit communities in three states. Giving Tuesday is one effort we have support that past few years and this year we are nominating our organization and all of those we serve for this grant!
We Have a Dream...a World Without Violence & Exploitation and we hope you do too!
Review for Transitions Global, Cincinnati, OH, USA
We have had the honor of working in tandem with James and Athena Pond for the past four years and I can honestly say our partnership with them and their great organization Transitions Global has been a highlight to a very dark epidemic. Educating and bringing awareness to Human Trafficking in America is not an easy task, but having the Pond family and their organization lead the way makes even a hard task seem easy. Transitions Global is an organization whose mission has had major impacts on combating human trafficking and exploitation domestically and globally – these impacts not only have saved lives but have restored the self-esteem to so many victims. Transitions Global’s efforts on education, prevention and awareness need to be commended without a doubt but it’s the ongoing restoration and aftercare to many victims that should be applauded; what they have done for these kids is remarkable! We are honored to call them not only our partners but our friends! Michelle A. Bart, President NWCAVE
