About | Who We Are
Chris Allen came on staff with Meet Justice as the Executive Director in December of 2009 and acts as the head of the Innocence Atlanta campaign. With a long and successful career in business and financial management here in Atlanta, Georgia, Allen brought a wealth of resources to the position. He believes that mobilizing the private corporate community to engage on behalf of the victims will break the back of the trafficking business in Atlanta. We need to produce detailed training templates to be used for all sectors of society on how to recognize and respond to victims. Through these trainings and the accumulation of financial funding for organizations seeking to free victims, we will be able to cripple the economically motivated industry of human trafficking.
Robyn Dooley considers herself to be a mesh between the southern and northern cultures in the U.S. Born in the north from two northern parents; most of her life has been spent in an expanding town near Atlanta, GA. A graduate from Toccoa Falls College with a Bachelor’s in English, Robyn’s dream has always been to pursue a career in writing that will help make a difference in the world, no matter how big or small.
College was the setting for Robyn’s first real introduction to the problem of human trafficking. One of her peers who held prominent positions in student government was very passionate about the subject and spoke often about the problems that were evolving right in their own backyard. A few years later, she found herself meeting with her friend Jessica, the Operations Manager of Meet Justice, where she was able to learn more information on the fight against human trafficking and the attempts being made to protect its victims. Through this relationship, she was able to link up with Meet Justice to join the fight to bring the criminals of these deeds to light and help battle for the protection of those who suffer within this repulsive industry.
In 2007 Beth was introduced to the problem of human trafficking. That same evening she decided that she had found a cause worth fighting for. Through her participation in local rallies, events and meetings, she discovered that the very city in which she lived is a booming center of trafficking in the United States. She has been restless to see that harsh truth changed ever since.
Beth Clymer is a recent graduate of Georgia State University. Through her research and writing with Meet Justice, she hopes both to learn more about trafficking and how to combat it as well as to encourage, inform and inspire others who want to become further involved in the movement to end trafficking and commercial exploitation.
Be sure to check out Beth’s build out blog on the issue of human trafficking, where she will describe and explain some of the more personal issues she faces as an advocate fighting against human trafficking.
Hunter Chapman is a fourth-year student at the University of Georgia with a passion to contribute firsthand to the fight against the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC). Hunter first heard about the existence and the severity of global sex trafficking at the 2010 Passion Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. His heart was wrenched by the graphic details and grotesque facts that unveiled the truth of the world that so few know about.
Hunter’s interest in the not-for-profit world led him to seek out an internship with a non-profit organization during the summer months leading up to his senior year of college. Hearing the name of Meet Justice in a single conversation, he researched the website, sent in an email to ask about the potential opportunity to get involved, and was inspired by the enthusiasm that met him head-on. He is a summer 2011 intern with a heart for justice and a desire to see light shine on this dark world of the commercial sexual exploitation of children right here in Atlanta. The INnocence Atlanta campaign is a great match for his passions and an awesome opportunity to get plugged into the CSEC world while interning with Meet Justice.
Natalie Decker is a second year student at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. She grew up in Atlanta, GA and has spent several years working with non profit organizations in both Atlanta and Philadelphia. She taught English and living skills to immigrants, worked with children of low income families in an academic and recreational setting, acted as a literacy tutor for elementary students in urban public schools, and sat on two non-profit boards for organizations in Atlanta.
Discovering that human trafficking had become a major issue in both the United States and more specifically in Atlanta was a huge surprise for Natalie and led her to the Meet Justice organization and the Innocence Atlanta campaign. As a 2011 summer intern, she hopes to continue her education in human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children in addition to using her experience in fundraising and interacting with communities in need to promote awareness of the human trafficking industry.
