The Issues that surround sexual exploitation have touched her family, just as it has impacted countless other families. The impetus to start the Hue Jackson Foundation came from a need to understand the long-term effects of trauma, not only for the victim, but also for the people who love them. In continuing to learn more about Human Trafficking, Michelle hopes to help other families in their own process of healing.
Kimberly Diemert has served as the Executive Director of the Hue Jackson Foundation since July of 2018, overseeing every phase of the foundation from program development and community education and awareness to assisting with recovery and long-term survivorship of those who have been victimized.
