RedLight Children

On September 7, 2011, Yvette Schmitter attended the Red Carpet Cocktail Reception for RedLight Children and Made to Give Project which was held at TenJune located in the Meatpacking District. RedLight Children is a global human rights nonprofit organization aiming to end the demand for child slavery and exploitation.  In 2002, while traveling in Cambodia, the organization’s founder, Guy Jacobson, was approached by a barrage of young girls as young as five offering themselves for sex. Horrified by this encounter and by the lack of action taken to address the problem, Jacobson initiated the most comprehensive global mass media campaign ever launched on the issue of human trafficking. Since its inception in 2004, RLC’s board members have been the keynote speakers at over 1,000 major high-profile events, screenings, panels and conferences in over 120 countries, including the Annual Conference for Women Judges, ABA’s Human Rights Conferences, the Roland Berger Foundation Human Dignity Awards Ceremony, the UN, Amnesty International, UNGIFT, USAID, UNICEF, and the U.S. State Department. Additionally, RLC’s board have lectured at over 100 Universities in the U.S. and internationally including Harvard, Yale, Georgetown, Columbia, NYU, Berkeley, and UCLA.
