Amanda Parker, Senior Director of the AHA Foundation, visits with Brother Craig with compelling conversation about the foundation (a 501(c)3 non-profit founded by women’s rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali) and the organization’s mission to end honor violence that shames, hurts or kills thousands of women and girls in the US each year. The AHA Foundation also works to elevate the status of women and girls globally so they can create peace and prosperity for themselves, their communities and the world.
Ms. Parker joined the AHA Foundation in 2011 and has worked with survivors of honor violence to help them find protection, including the repatriation of a woman taken overseas for forced marriage. She has facilitated trainings on honor violence and forced marriage with guidance counselors, law enforcement, service providers and other professionals. Ms. Parker began her career on Wall Street, and holds a BA in Marketing and International Business from Kansas State University.
