Her poetry has also been featured twice on P4CMs Rhetoric and on the TVOne’s “Verses & Flow” (Season 2 & 4). Treesje is a mental health advocate and licensed psychologist who has found a way to heal her community through her voice Nola Brantley: Nola Brantley is the Founder & CEO of Nola Brantley Speaks is best known as a nationally acclaimed advocate who has played a large role in spear-heading the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children awareness and advocacy movement in the state of California since 2004. Nola has traveled the continuum of abuse that many sex trafficking victims and survivors have traveled. Nola has become nationally recognized as a powerful voice for the issue of child sex trafficking through her moving and information packed public speaking. Her experience with the compounded risk factors of poverty, unaddressed trauma, intergenerational abuse, foster care involvement and misuse of authority all serve to give Nola a powerful firsthand understanding not only of the CSEC issue, but also of the underlying societal tapestry that creates and perpetuates the current epidemic of exploitation and violence plaguing the U.S. Her hard work and perpetual vigilance has brought both focus and concrete resources to this chronically underserved and largely unrecognized population of victimized youth. She has taught innovative aftercare methods for abuse survivors to individuals from around the world. Currently Nola is working as a child sex trafficking subject matter expert and a sought after master-trainer through her consultancy company Nola Brantley Speaks where she has trained over 250,000 professionals and community members to date.
