Thank you for visiting iEmpathize.org.
iEmpathize began through the passion and journey of our founder and president, Brad Riley. Brad has more than 20 years of non-profit experience. His work supporting people and communities struggling with vulnerability began in the early 90’s. In the mid 2000’s, he had the opportunity to help support some anti-trafﬁcking projects in SE Asia. Visiting those projects and encountering child survivors changed everything. In 2009, he rallied an amazing group of friends, and sometimes strangers, lending their ideas, expertise, influence, time, services, artistry, and money to impact youth and empower people with empathy and action. iEmpathize has garnered international attention for its work to end child exploitation. With a culture of collaboration, iEmpathize is moving its mission forward by an effective staff filled with passion and innovation and through a host of creative partners, committed volunteers, and partnerships with strategic stakeholders. Currently, the work of iEmpathize prioritizes prevention and is focused primarily in the US. From the beginning, the youth have been the CEO’s of iEmpathize and their lives and futures lead the way.
