Sister Joan Dawber

Sister Joan Dawber is the Founder and Executive Director of LifeWay Network, an organization that provides safe housing to women survivors of human trafficking. In the course of her work, she has expanded the public’s awareness of trafficking survivors’ immense suffering and acute needs through LifeWay Network’s education program to raise awareness, deepen understanding, and engage others around the issue of human trafficking.

 “I am committed to changing the culture of ignorance and apathy that enable modern-day slavery. Until this scourge is ended, I am equally committed to caring for women who have suffered the experience of trafficking.”
