Executive Director, LifeWorks
A leader in the global movement to end violence against women and children, Lena Alhusseini has worked with USAID, UNICEF, and other international organizations on child protection and human trafficking issues. She also founded the Jordan River Foundation’s child protection unit, the first organization to address child abuse in the Middle East. Ms. Alhusseini has been honored as a White House Champion of Change for her work to combat domestic violence.
“Human trafficking violates every single one of us. As long as there is one child suffering, our collective dignity as human beings is violated. Our work will continue until all forms of violence, slavery, and human trafficking end—and all inalienable human rights are upheld, valued, and respected.”
