LouAnn, 2017 Utah Mother of the Year, was inspired by the presentation given during the 2017 National Convention and decided that was something she wanted to work on during her year as Utah Mother of the Year. She contacted several groups throughout the state to see what could be done to work together. She finally decided that something had to be done to raise awareness of this issue in Utah. She contacted the Utah Attorney General’s office and worked with them for several months to create a proclamation.

Thank you, Utah for showing us the power of an American Mother to make a difference in her community. 

We See. We Care. We Serve.

    We are so proud of LouAnn and all the time and energy it took for her to make this declaration happen. She was persistent to reach her goal of bringing awareness of the problem of human trafficking to the citizens of Utah. Good job!
