Our organization began through the passion and journey of our founder, Brad Riley, and a small group of his close friends. Brad’s experience supporting people and communities struggling with vulnerability began in the early 1990s. In the mid 2000’s, his work in the U.S. led him to partner on several anti-trafﬁcking projects in SE Asia with a number of individuals and service organizations. After visiting those projects and personally encountering child survivors of sexual exploitation, Brad returned to the United States committed to rallying others to join him in efforts to eradicate child exploitation. In 2009, he and a group of passionate people devoted their ideas, expertise, influence, time, services, artistry, and money to establish iEmpathize, an organization committed to impacting youth and empowering people with empathy and action.
With that culture of collaboration and empathy as our foundation, we move our mission forward with a host of creative partners, committed volunteers, and strategic partnerships. We invite you to join us. Be a part of the movement of empathy to transform the lives of vulnerable and victimized children.
"We evoke empathy and empower people to eradicate child exploitation.”
