Co-Founders of AIM’s Anti-Trafficking Initiatives, Don and Bridget Brewster, along with their grandson, Dominick, were recently presented a letter of commendation from Lieutenant General Pol Phie They, a huge honor in Cambodia culture. During their time together, General Pol Phie They spoke highly of AIM and at one point noted, “AIM’s efforts greatly contributed to Cambodia’s improved TIP (Trafficking in Persons) Report rating.” The letter of commendation has been translated from Khmer to English below.
In addition to the commendation, the general also joined AIM’s 22 Movement. The 22 Movement connects the dots between pornography and sex trafficking and calls men around the globe to come together to raise awareness of the issue and to end pornography use and sex trafficking all together.
