AG’s Victim Services Unit Honored with the 2013 Vision Award


OKLAHOMA CITY — The Attorney General’s Victim Services Unit has been awarded the 2013 Vision Award for their work with human trafficking and its victims.

The 2013 Vision Award was presented by No Boundaries International in recognition of the AG Unit’s groundbreaking vision to help victims of human trafficking in Oklahoma. Agencies and individuals were honored at a recent ceremony for their commitment to ending human sex trafficking, working with partnering agencies, including faith based organizations such as No Boundaries International, and for their forward-thinking efforts to combat the global issue in Oklahoma.

“We are proud of our Victim Services Unit and all the hard work they do every day to improve the lives of Oklahomans and protect them from harm,” Attorney General Scott Pruitt said.

No Boundaries International selected the AG’s Victim Services Unit for the Vision Award based upon their efforts to establish policies for working with human sex trafficking victims, ensuring victims’ safety, and developing long-term goals for the State of Oklahoma to certify intervention and non-residential services for victims.

Kim Silvia, development director for No Boundaries International and a survivor of sex trafficking, presented the award to Lesley March, chief of the AG’s Victim Services Unit, at the annual No Boundaries International Voices Gala and Dinner.

The mission of the AG’s Victim Services Unit is to improve services for Oklahoma crime victims and families who have suffered injustice at the hands of an offender. For information, visit www.oag.ok.gov/oagweb.nsf/vservices.html.
