Unlikely Heroes is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and restoration of children who were exploited in the sex trade in the US and internationally. In November 2011, Unlikely Heroes deployed a rescue team to the Philippines and rescued 10 girls out of brothels in the Philippines and opened their first restoration home for the rescued girls. The girls are now living in safety and receive life skills, education, job training and clinically sound therapy through the Unlikely Heroes restoration program. Unlikely Heroes also operates an outreach program in the San Francisco Bay Area for commercially exploited children and is currently fundraising to open a rescue home in the Bay Area this year.
This event will feature red carpet arrivals and also include a live presentation from Erica Greve, MSW, President and Founder of Unlikely Heroes. Greve is an internationally known speaker on the issue of justice and human trafficking and has dedicated her life to see the lives of at-risk children protected and improved worldwide. Greve first came into contact with domestic minor sex trafficking victims while working at a hospital in the San Francisco Bay Area more than 5 years ago. Greve is passionate about educating people on the subject of human trafficking, and creating ways for people to get involved, and volunteer for social justice causes. Greve regularly speaks on human trafficking and social justice issues. Greve is also available July 24-28 for in-person interviews.
