With 25 years of experience working with children, teens, and families in youth outreach, domestic and foreign missions and as a 12-year police and undercover officer, Jessica Bartholomew, brings firsthand information and experience to the issues of child and teen sexual exploitation, abuse, and sex trafficking.
Her mission is to take everything she knows about what leaves children and teens vulnerable to exploitation, the cultural and spiritual dynamics that fuel a dark market for child abuse and trafficking, and use it to educate and equip communities in prevention.

The Rotary Club of Edina seeks nominees for the 16th-annual“Chrysanne Manoles Women In Leadership Award.”
Nominees cannot be current Rotarians and must live, work or volunteer in Edina. Female nominees must demonstrate Rotary’s “Four Way Test” of the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
To nominate a woman for the prestigious award, submit a one- or two-page letter explaining how the person demonstrates the Four Way Test and what she does in the community outside of any professional position she holds. Letters should be sent to jbennerotte@EdinaRotary.org or Rotary Club of Edina, 4801W. 50th St., Edina, MN 55424. Letters must be postmarked by Saturday, April 15.
