The Lisa Project

Real Estate Agent with Crown Key Realty

As a Realtor I have learned to keep my mouth shut and not express to many opinions when with clients. Here in the Bay area if you says something positive about the Oakland A s your hardcore SF Giants fan may become and ex client very quickly. I previewed a home once for a client and gave them a rave review of the kitchen. The wife thought it was horrible and I quickly became their ex Realtor.


One thing I do have an opinion about and am not afraid to express my feelings on is child abuse. Like many people I know it happens and dislike like it. That changed yesterday when I visited the “Lisa Project” at West Valley Mall in Tracy California. The theme of the Lisa Project is that some secrets need to be told. The secrets were horrible, but needed to be told. The presentation took about 24 minutes and I will tell you clearly it will effect me for a lifetime. The presentation was shocking, ugly and uplifting. I won't say why. If the Lisa Project ever comes to your town take time to view it. They do not ask for money they only want to open eyes.

Child abuse is common, sad and without excuse.

Sex trafficking is a terrible and very common crime as well. We had a presentation at our church and I had no idea how prevalent sex trafficking is.

Heck, there have been two recent cases in Minnesota where high school students were pimping out other students!

Hi Dale, Thank you for writing about this project.  Unfortunately, some children are told that bad things are to be "secrets" or kept "hush hush".  It sounds like The Lisa Project is all about creating awareness.  I will be on the look-out for a presentation in my area.
