One of the project's first volunteers, Aimee is now responsible for our social entrepreneurship program, team meetings, and volunteer network.
Most recently, she played a key role in the development of "The Ugly Truth," our End Demand Illinois anti-trafficking campaign. This multi-media public service campaign, which will make over 200 million audience impressions during its run, calls for a more compassionate, activist response to sex trafficking in Illinois, and will serve as a model for anti-trafficking communications campaigns in other regions. "Media can play a key role in creating change, but only when it is used in the right way, and targeted to the right audience. One of the great things about The Voices and Faces Project is that we bring together those with world-class communications experience and those with a passion for social justice. Bringing these players together in one room can be magical – the ideas that emerge during our working sessions inspire me."
Aimee is convinced that the future of the women's movement lies in the hands of her generation, and the younger women she mentors through our volunteer network. "So many amazing women who have come before us have already done important work fighting violence against women. Now my generation needs to step up and be a part of this in order to change things. That's why I love doing this work."
Aimee has a history of supporting the work of local and national non-profits including the Soup Kitchen, Ronald McDonald House, Loyola University Chicago Ministry, and Rape Victim Advocates of Chicago. An actress and singer, Aimee brings a unique creative sensibility to The Voices and Faces Project, which is critical given the focus on both social justice and artistic excellence.
