Founder and President of Havenly Blue Foundation
Priscilla Perez is a survivor of child abuse; she understands first-hand the cycle of abuse, the damage it causes a child’s self-esteem, and the systemic failures within federal organizations that claim to protect children. As a young adult, she was one of the “lucky ones” who was able to recover from the trauma, grow, and separate her experience as a victim from her identity and self-value. However, her younger siblings remained in the foster care system and suffered at the hands of abusers. Without financial means or representation, she educated herself on the laws in order to fight for custody of all her younger siblings, which she was granted in 2010. That experience empowered her to advocate for other children suffering from abuse; to give them a voice in the court system and to help change the laws that protect abusers.
