2011 Director’s Community Leadership Awards

Birmingham Patricia A. McCay

Birmingham field office Director’s Community Leadership Award 2011

The Birmingham Division is pleased to honor Ms. Patricia A. McCay, who works to raise awareness and promote education surrounding human trafficking issues in her community.

In 2008, Ms. McCay became a member of the Madison County Coordinated Community Response Taskforce Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. The next year, she was named chairwoman and was responsible for the inclusion of human trafficking to the name and as a focus of the task force. As a result of her efforts, the Madison County Commission, the cities of Huntsville and Madison, and the Redstone Arsenal signed a proclamation making January 11, 2010 Human Trafficking Awareness Day in Madison County.

In May 2010, the task force created a subcommittee focused on defining a coalition of services and service providers in north Alabama to help prepare the community for victims of human trafficking.

Last year, the task force sponsored a community educational forum on human trafficking. More than 75 attendees spent the day learning about Alabama human trafficking legislation, the FBI’s role in civil rights and human trafficking enforcement, and an overview of services available to the community.

In a ceremony at FBI Headquarters, Director Robert S. Mueller, III recognized the recipients of the 2011 Director’s Community Leadership Award. These leaders, selected by their area FBI field office, have demonstrated outstanding contributions to their local communities through service. The FBI is grateful for the work of each of these individuals and organizations on behalf of their communities.

“Whatever the motivation—an unfilled need, a tragic occurrence, a desire to give back—these are people who make things happen and enlist others in their cause,” said Director Mueller. “They are activists who have earned their prestige through good works.”
