NATALIE GRANT JOINS U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
23 July 2007

Curb recording artist and GMA’s reigning Female Vocalist of the Year, Natalie Grant, helped announce the formation of the Nashville “Rescue & Restore Victims of Human Trafficking” Coalition, during a press conference held this week by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF). The local group will join a national “Rescue & Restore” network of 18 coalitions intended to provide outreach and training to those most likely to encounter victims of human trafficking.

Speaking at the press conference, Grant chronicled her personal involvement with the human trafficking issue and discussed the importance of raising awareness of the problem within the local community. Other speakers included Craig S. Morford, U.S. Attorney; Amber Beckham, coordinator, Network of Emergency Trafficking Services, World Relief; Martha Newton, Director, Office of Refugee Resettlement, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; and Ambassador Mark Lagon, Director of the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, U.S. Department of State.

Since traveling to India three years ago to observe firsthand the horrific sexual exploitation of children, Grant has been committed to helping combat human trafficking around the world. She created the Home Foundation, which raises money and awareness for various human trafficking relief efforts. For further information, visit www.nataliegrant.com or www.thehomefoundation.net.

The “Rescue & Restore Victims of Human Trafficking” campaign aims to educate Americans about the problem of human trafficking and how they can “Look Beneath the Surface” to help victims in their own community. The 24-hour National Human Trafficking Resource Center, 888-3737-888, provides instant referrals for victims’ services through social service organizations in the caller’s city. Visit the “Rescue & Restore” Web site at: www.acf.hhs.gov/trafficking, for more information.

Natalie Grant spoke at a press conference Tuesday in downtown Nashville, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to announce the formation of its newest “Rescue & Restore Victims of Human Trafficking” Coalition. Pictured at the announcement are (l-r) Craig S.
