Fainess Lipenga has been an active member of the National Survivor Network since 2013. As a survivor of labor trafficking, she uses her voice and experience to educate the community and raise awareness. Her mission is to prevent other survivors from being re-victimized and to give them hope and courage to heal, become leaders, and achieve their dreams. Lipenga has testified before the U.S. Congress regarding the challenges survivors face and presented to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. She has provided training for pro bono lawyers, law students, physicians, law enforcement officials, and federal prosecutors. She has spoken at national conferences and developed expert training materials. Lipenga believes survivor voices and leadership are essential to advocacy on human trafficking. She is a certified nursing assistant and continues to pursue her goal of becoming a registered nurse.
Hannah Street is the Administrative Assistant for Survivor Alliance - having the joy and privilege of connecting with members, creating resources, helping schedule upcoming strategic meetings, and more. If you’re a member, the chances are you’ve had an email from her! Alongside this, she is currently studying a Masters in Person-Centred Counseling & Psychotherapy at the University of Nottingham. She is also an Outreach Coordinator with the Jericho Project, a non-profit based within Nottingham. Prior to this, she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and spent several years working with a non-profit organization based in Tijuana, Mexico. It was here - working alongside women who had been trafficked and exploited - that her decision to dedicate her life to the empowerment of survivors began. She feels so privileged to have the opportunity to live out this passion through this job, and work alongside such inspirational individuals; members and directors alike! In her spare time, she loves to read, explore, hike, and perfect her coffee-making.
