Co-Founder/Executive Director The Demand Project
In 2004, the Founders of The Demand Project—Jason and Kristin Weis were living in Colorado with their beautiful family in what seemed to be the perfect world. One seemingly normal night, while watching the news, a headline story would forever grip their hearts and change the course of their lives forever. The story they heard that night, and that will now be shared with you, is horrific yet one that unfortunately tells the story of too many children. This story is responsible for Jason and Kristin’s decision to drastically change their lives.
The story on the news that night was that of a father, who had raped his three year old daughter, videotaped his brutal crime, downloaded it onto the internet, and if that isn’t devastating enough—thousands of people logged on to watch!
That was a monumental moment for this couple, wondering “how can we continue our safe life, when so many children are living in this torture?” They made the decision right then and there to dedicate their lives to eradicating child sexual exploitation.
Jason, Kristin, and their children moved from their home, family, and friends to get trained up to fight in this battle for freedom. They have never looked back and continue to look forward to a world where children do not have to live enslaved by sexual perversion.
