Andrew Barron, a third year law student from Pepperdine University, served in our Beijing office this summer. In addition to providing research on anti-trafficking issues, Andrew also provided legal research and marketing/sales recommendations for our freedom business partners in China. He also helped investigate the legal needs of migrants, working closely with one of JVI’s partners, a well-respected organization that operates community centers for migrant families in Beijing. Andrew also assisted with trainings for migrant community leaders, and attended meetings with other NGOs and freedom advocates. We are thankful for Andrew’s hard work and willing spirit!
Julia Rauen, a sophomore at University of Virginia, proved invaluable in helping with our Shop For Freedom (SFF) campaign. Julia managed the SFF’s Facebook page, updated and refined our SFF website, and provided research on marketing and sales opportunities of Freeset bags with local businesses. In addition, she also worked on researching labor trafficking issues in rice fields. We so appreciate Julia’s natural social media skills and her servant heart!
Timothy Choo, a freshman at Virginia Commonwealth University, served JVI by focussing on our SFF Campaign and providing research for local wholesale opportunities for future custom bag and tee-shirt orders. Timothy also plans to continue raising awareness on human trafficking issues at his home church, and to help sell Freeset bags to support JVI’s mission. We are grateful for Timothy’s work to support JVI’s mission!
