Meriah Moffat TL PicWhen Meriah first became aware of modern-day slavery in 2009, she felt a deep call to act. Since then she has taught every grade K-12, graduated from Azusa Pacific University with her masters in choral conducting, and volunteered with several anti-trafficking organizations, both locally and internationally. Meriah is a huge believer in O.U.R. and its mission. Not only does O.U.R. rescue victims, incarcerate perpetrators, and support aftercare – they also work with local law enforcement to make sure it is done right and execute their own missions in the future. In all of her work, Meriah has found that working with law enforcement and other local organizations is the key to creating long-term, sustainable solutions to human trafficking. See how you can be part of the solution and join us in saying, “Not in my town, not on my watch!”

Jen Bartholomew.pngJen been a Fire Engineer and Paramedic for 25 years. Through her time as a firefighter, she has experienced the worst of the worst including many cases of trafficking and abuse. She worked on an ambulance in San Francisco and witnessed many cases of human trafficking and labor trafficking. She was introduced to Operation Underground Railroad by one of her hero’s, also a trafficking survivor. One thing she has learned from her is that even though bad things can happen to us, it is what we do in the aftermath that defines us. This is hard and painful work, but she believes it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of her life. The beauty lies in each of us together, making a difference, finding hope and joy and fun, while we fight for the lives of others.
