Lois Lee

Dr. Lois Lee is founder and president of Children of the Night, the first established and only comprehensive anti-sex trafficking program in North America. Her organization has rescued over 10,000 American children from prostitution in the United States, which is more children than all of the other anti-sex trafficking programs combined.

Lee has received countless awards for her humanitarian work, most notably the prestigious President’s Volunteer Action Award, presented to her by President Ronald Reagan at the White House in 1984. She also received the 1994 National Caring Award, and her permanent memorial portrait hangs in the Frederick Douglass Museum and Hall of Fame for Caring Americans in Washington, D.C.
