2012 Director’s Community Leadership Awards

San Francisco
Sisters of the Holy Family

Anchorage field office Director’s Community Leadership Award 2011

Sister Elaine Sanchez accepts the award on behalf of the Sisters of the Holy Family.

The San Francisco Division is pleased to honor the Sisters of the Holy Family, advocates for human trafficking prevention and Internet safety, as recipients of the 2012 Director’s Community Leadership Award.

The Sisters of the Holy Family mirror the FBI’s efforts to build a safer community. They provide support for those who have been victimized by human trafficking and support healing, restoration, and re-integration into a life worthy of human dignity. They also play an intricate role in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California’s Human Trafficking Working Group.

The Sisters of the Holy Family participated in the May 2012 San Francisco Division’s Community Leader Forum in the Oakland Resident Agency. They work closely with FBI San Francisco’s criminal and cyber programs and support the mission of squads that conduct investigations into public corruption, civil rights violations, and exploitation of children via the Internet.

In a ceremony at FBI Headquarters, Director Robert S. Mueller, III recognized the recipients of the 2012 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.”
