Glynn Hines

Glynn Hines PortraitGlynn has fought for justice for underserved communities, with some critics at the table with him, and others, in the community that he has been fighting for. Some Judged him because they didn't understand the connection of layered barriers plauging the community and the lingering effects of systemic racismm and others didn't understand the opposition he faced while advocating for change and challenging old ways of thinking, but Glynn persevered paving the way for change and creating the space for other people of color locally to use thier voice and practice Civic Engagement.

 

Genevieve Meyer

Genevieve Meyer PortraitWhile many people are aware of the dangers that child marriage presents abroad, few realize the dangers that child-marriage poses to youth right here in the United States. As a former child-bride, Genevieve Meyer is all too familiar with the plight facing young people across our nation, and has taken it upon herself to champion – and spread awareness about- the cause of ending child marriage in the state of Indiana and across our nation. As the founder of the Resiliency Foundation, Genevieve works to provide education and legislative training for organizations and support for victims of forced marriage and sexual violence.
