As an attorney and passionate advocate for social justice, Ms. Sedgwick Davis has guided the Bridgeway Foundation to pioneering solutions to seemingly intractable issues. More recently, Ms. Sedgwick Davis and the Bridgeway Foundation have been credited for their pivotal role in mobilizing awareness, civilian protection, and recovery efforts against the Lord’s Resistance Army and its leader, Joseph Kony; the first-ever indictee of the International Criminal Court. Sustained by the strength of the human heart, Shannon is working every day to champion human rights for those facing great danger and harm.
