As a graduate of Human Development from the University of California, San Diego, the value of humanity has been at the core of Adia Lancaster’s life since she was in sixth grade, where she experienced a life changing moment when shown a Reuse-Reduce-Recycle video in class. This became the catalyst that empowered her to live a life for others knowing that every action she was to take in making it better for the next person, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, has the power to make a positive shift in the world. Living with this principle, coupled with a strong desire to bring justice and truth to those who suffer from the unrighteous acts of others, has guided her throughout her diverse careers. Adia is currently exercising her true passion as Project Director of Women’s Affairs for Congo Justice, a project of New Hope Foundation International, where she is able to bring education, inspiration and empowerment to women and children in our global community.
Adia currently serves on the Southern Nevada Human Trafficking Task Force as a member of two sub-committees – Prevention and Awareness Training, as well as, Victim Services. She was also recognized by former Attorney General of Nevada, Catherine Cortez Masto, for her commitment and dedication to sex trafficking prevention.
Adia is honored to be a member of the Congressional Award Council of Nevada and is looking forward to contributing to the growth and empowerment of Nevada youth with this amazing program.
