Alisa H. New­ber: StA­TUSA (Stand Against Traf­fick­ing USA), Direc­tor of Com­mu­ni­ty Devel­op­ment

Alisa New­ber joined the StA­TUSA team in Octo­ber 2014. As a vol­un­teer she helped facil­i­tate train­ing in the fol­low­ing areas: human traf­fick­ing aware­ness, sur­vivor pro­grams, human advo­cate and jail min­istry, and post com­mu­ni­ty sup­port pro­grams. Alisa stepped into the posi­tion of Direc­tor of Com­mu­ni­ty Devel­op­ment in July 2016. She and her team planned and orga­nized a com­mu­ni­ty wide “Stand Against Traf­fick­ing USA spon­sored Social Issues Forum” in the spring of 2017, iden­ti­fy­ing com­mu­ni­ty resources and build­ing a mul­ti-coun­ty  coali­tion of orga­ni­za­tions rep­re­sent­ing law enforce­ment, gov­ern­ment agen­cies, med­ical providers, ser­vice providers and the faith-based com­mu­ni­ty.

Alisa and her team will con­tin­ue to pro­mote pub­lic and pro­fes­sion­al aware­ness and pre­ven­tion through pre­sen­ta­tions, train­ing events and peri­od­ic pub­lic forums to address the social issues that make peo­ple vul­ner­a­ble to human traf­fick­ing. They will con­tin­ue to build coali­tions by bring­ing togeth­er church­es and oth­er rel­e­vant orga­ni­za­tions to col­lab­o­rate and coor­di­nate com­mu­ni­ty wide efforts.

Alisa’s pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence includes two decades of busi­ness own­er­ship and man­age­ment. Alisa has a bach­e­lor’s degree in Pub­lic Rela­tions. Her strengths are prob­lem solv­ing, strate­gic plan­ning and team devel­op­ment. Alisa’s strong com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and desire to build com­mu­ni­ty rela­tion­ships makes her an excel­lent leader for StA­TUSA and com­mu­ni­ty coali­tion ini­tia­tives.
