Who We Are

 

Genice Jacobs is the creative director and founder of Abolitionist Mom. She is a subject matter expert and trainer working with government agencies, NGOs and school districts on public service campaigns, prevention initiatives and fundraising.  She is the producer of award winning anti-trafficking campaigns and the Associate Producer of the documentary California’s Forgotten Children. Her advocacy resulted in the establishment of the City of Oakland’s Commercially Sexually Exploited Children’s Taskforce and SB1165: California’s 2014 sexual abuse and sex trafficking prevention education law. Prior to becoming an activist, Genice was a recruiting and human resources consultant in Silicon Valley and held positions in marketing and fundraising.  Genice was named 2014 Modern Day Abolitionist for Advocacy by the San Francisco Coalition to End Human Trafficking and in 2015 she was recognized as a Ford Unsung Hero.

Stacy Jewell is a creative partner of AbolitionistMom.  She is writer, director, and producer of the award winning play 7 Layers Captive, which premiered at the Kennedy Center, was raised in the D.C. metropolitan area. At age 19 she was abducted and forced into the dark world of sex trafficking. After being held captive for almost two years, she was liberated from the violence and the physiological abuse of the sex industry.

She is an internationally recognized survivor leader and trainer with the Department of Justice and was honored at the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Press Conference by the Honorable, Senators Chuck Schumer and Patrick Leahy.  She is an advocate for victims, an expert trainer and performance artist who founded the WhoisStolen Creative Arts Troupe.  As a survivor of human trafficking, Stacy knows all too well that words have the power to uplift or tear down the soul. Her compelling dramatizations have helped various organizations including The National Center of Missing and Exploited Children, the FBI, state level human trafficking task forces and The Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Stacy has dedicated her life to community outreach and advocacy mobilization on behalf of the victims of sex trafficking from around the world. As she often states, “entertainment and media are powerful forms in creating public awareness,” and she believes that helping survivors and advocates find their voice through creative expression is vital to the movement of ending modern day slavery.
