"The women of iZōsh are making a difference in women's lives before
they become vulnerable to human trafficking. As the director of the
Human Trafficking Clinic in Ann Arbor, I see the "after" situation, when women are victims, and I hope that someday iZōsh can help eradicate the need for what I do."

"I was absolutely overwhelmed by the commitment of the women of iZōsh to serve others who live in poverty. I was equally touched to see teenage girls sharing this passion alongside women in their 90's. Caring for the poor connects us together in so many powerful ways, and to experience the excitement and determination of these American women who made it possible was priceless."
