Kristie Barnett Sexton
Kristie Barnett Sexton is responsible for the vision and strategy behind this event that will promote community involvement and raise awareness for the Phoenix Dream Center and StreetLightUSA, the nation’s largest human trafficking rescue & rehabilitation operation.
“With Arizona ranking 16th in the nation for human sex trafficking, it is still shocking to me that so many of the people I talk to are unaware that this is going on in our own backyards. While only 1 out of 100 victims are rescued, it is our responsibility to do something about this. By shedding a light on this issue, through events like the Stop Traffic Walk, we can begin to create change.”
Kristie has always had a heart for helping her community. She was raised in a family where outreach and service were part of their daily lives. Through the years, Kristie has practiced these values with her own family and their business in various ways. Kristie and her husband are founders and owners of Sexton Services, where philanthropy is one of their core pillars. “It has always been a priority for us to instill the power of service into our children and our employees. Everything we can do to help, no matter how big or how small, will make a difference.” – Kristie Barnett Sexton
