Last week O.U.R. was invited to attend and present at an event with the Holy See at the United Nations in New York, titled,
“Economically Empowering Trafficking Survivors to Stay Permanently Off the Streets.”

(Presentation by O.U.R. begins at the 33 minute mark.)
Jon Lines, EVP of Operations for O.U.R., spoke as a member of the panel.
Here are some excerpts from the presentation:
Along with our very own Jon Lines, presentations were also given by the following leaders:
Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations
Victims Assistant Coordinator within the Human Trafficking and Cyber Crime Unit of Homeland Security
President and Founder of Airline Ambassadors
We’d like to thank Archbishop Auza for inviting us to be part of the conversation. It is inspiring to come together in the same room with other organizations to hear what we are all doing to save, protect, and empower victims of sex trafficking.
